Welcome to BC Creative Convergence

This is your invitation to join your arts, culture, and heritage community colleagues in a province-wide conversation about the development of a cultural policy framework for British Columbia.

The BC Alliance for Arts + Culture and ArtsBC are holding a province-wide series of Community Cultural Roundtables. These Roundtables are part of the BC Creative Convergence project launched in 2013.

The Roundtables will focus on a Cultural Policy Discussion Paper which will be posted to this website at the beginning of March. This Discussion Paper will address:

  • What local and regional issues should be reflected in a Cultural Policy;
  • How a Cultural Policy could recognize the economic and social impact of cultural activities;
  • How a Cultural Policy should acknowledge the historic and contemporary importance of the multicultural diversity of BC’s communities;
  • How a Cultural Policy could impact the relationships between the sector and the provincial government and its ministries and agencies.

The Community Cultural Roundtable series is your opportunity to bring your personal, local, and regional perspectives to this important provincial initiative.

If you are unable to attend a Roundtable in your community but would like to contribute to the discussion through an online survey, click on the “Survey” tab at the top of this page.

Here is the full calendar of Community Cultural Roundtables. RSVP now to ensure your place at the table and join the conversation.
