Let your voice be heard

This month there are some specific ways to let your voice me heard regarding arts and culture in our region.

Firstly, the County of Simcoe Economic Development Office is gathering information towards developing a Cultural Plan for our county.  They are hosting a series of community meetings throughout the county as well as an online survey.

For a link to the survey and a list of meeting dates click here.

Secondly, The City of Barrie and the Barrie Arts and Culture Council are hosting a meeting entitled "The Future of the Arts, Where Do We Go from Here?" The evening will primarily focus on the Barrie Arts and Culture Council, it's role in the community and the purpose that it will serve into the future. This forum is open to all members of our community and is not intended for the arts community only.

"The Future of the Arts, Where Do We Go From Here?"
Tuesday September 10th @7pm
The Mady Centre for the Performing Arts
1 Dunlop St. West
Barrie ON

Kindly RSVP to or call (705) 739-4299. 

Beyond these specific forums, you can always discuss arts and culture with your local arts council, cultural department and of course your political representation at any and all levels of government. These institutions and systems are in place to hear and respond to the voices of the communities they serve. Let your voice be heard.
