Arts and Culture: Key to Building Healthy, Vibrant BC Communities?
British Columbia Recreation and Parks Assn
Arts and culture are important contributors to individual and community vitality. Creators, performers, audiences, volunteers, donors, cultural organizations and other arts participants can be thought of as forming an interconnected ‘ecosystem’ that can foster economic growth, stimulate innovation and enhance local identity. What are the key trends and impacts relating to cultural participation in BC and Canada, and how might they affect your planning (and your community)? Where will you find new donors and audiences and how will you motivate them? This presentation includes findings from the Arts Research Monitor and the Statistical Insights on the Arts series in a presentation designed specifically for the BCRPA conference.
