Create Victoria Online Survey Closes Thursday, April 13

What does a creative city look like to you?

What do art and culture organizations, artists and creative entrepreneurs need to be successful? And how can the City support this vision and needs?

Take the opportunity to “make your mark” to create conditions for creativity to flourish in Victoria!

Your input will help shape Create Victoria, a five-year Arts and Culture Master Plan that will align ideas, people, and resources around a shared vision and a set of goals, strategies and tactics to realize Victoria’s potential and guide investment.

Create Victoria Online Survey

Help us measure the impact of arts and culture in Victoria by participating in an online survey!

The first section of the survey is open to the general public, asking for your ideas on how you currently participate in arts and culture, your vision for a vibrant arts and culture scene, and how the City could support this.

The second section of the survey is aimed at those in the arts and culture biz to help inform an Economic Impact Assessment study that will be used to develop the draft Arts and Culture Master Plan. 

NOTE: The survey has been extended to Thursday, April 13, 2017.

Coming Up

Thank you to everyone who shared ideas at the Create Victoria Cultural Café on March 4 at City Hall. A series of cultural cafés will be held with sectors of the arts and culture industry in March and there will be opportunities to share your ideas at a range of pop-up kiosks at local venues and on social media at #CreateVictoria.

Get on the Map!

Are you on the map? To ensure Victoria’s arts and culture industry is accurately represented in the Master Plan, and to help the City identify opportunities and gaps, industry members are invited to add or update their organizations, businesses and public art on the Arts Victoria cultural map. Since 2010, more than 900 City-owned and community-run arts and culture resources have been mapped.

Next Steps

We'll reach out again to the community in mid-June for feedback on the draft Cultural Policy and draft Arts and Culture Master Plan. We appreciate your time and ideas!
