Richmond Arts Strategy


UPDATE (July 9, 2019)

It’s official! Richmond City Council has now approved the Richmond Arts Strategy 2019-2024, following recommendation by the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Committee on June 25.

The new Richmond Arts Strategy is the result of many months of consultation and public input.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in our extensive community engagement campaign, and give an extra big shout-out to the many community members that made up the Richmond Arts Strategy Task Group and provided their insight and expertise throughout the process.

The Richmond Arts Strategy will serve as a guide for decision-making to empower ideas, people and resources around a shared vision and set of goals, strategies.

It is rooted in local context and positions the arts as a means to achieve community goals in economic development, health and well-being, infrastructure and tourism.

Mark your calendar

Everyone is invited to a public event to celebrate the launch of our new Arts Strategy during Culture Days on September 27-29. Stay tuned for details.
