City hosts Culture Café for local arts and culture community

Still time to register

City staff are hosting a Culture Café for local arts and culture groups on Wednesday night to provide an update on Red Deer’s culture plan, known as the Community Culture Vision.

In 2008, the city adopted its cultural plan with recommendations on six key areas: values and themes, planning, facilitation and collaboration, infrastructure, experiments, and funding.

Staff will share what the city has achieved so far, find out what community groups are doing and how their work aligns with the plan, and provide an opportunity for participants to connect with each other.

Those who consider themselves as a cultural consumer, or part of the local cultural community, are encouraged to attend.

The café runs from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Golden Circle, and will help to gather feedback for a progress report on the plan’s implementation to city council in early 2017.

People are asked to RSVP by e-mailing culturemailbox@reddeer.ca or calling 403-309-4091.
