London Cultural Prosperity Plan Community Consultation
This week the City of London Culture Office will host an informal Cultural Mixer

November 8 at the London Convention Centre, the event will run from 5:00 to 7:00
p.m. There is no charge to participate in the Cultural Mixer but registration is
Light refreshments will be served.
We kicked off the planning process for London's new Cultural Prosperity Plan
with a Cultural Fair in April 2012. Since that introduction, hundreds of
Londoners have provided input on what culture means to them and dozens of
community leaders, cultural organizations and City staff members have worked
collaboratively in determining the direction for the plan and actions to align
culture and creativity with economic prosperity and quality of life.
“London’s new Cultural Prosperity Plan promises to be a new strategic document
that will grow the successes we have achieved and will provide a collective
vision and direction for our evolving culture. The Plan will continue to make
London the place people choose to live, incubate new ideas, develop and thrive,”
said Councillor Judy Bryant, Chair of the Creative City Committee.
The process is being led by Dialog, a firm with substantial experience in
culture plan development across Canada. They are working in collaboration with:
the Creative City Committee Working Group which is supported by the City of
London Culture Office, the London Arts Council and the London Heritage Council.
Funding has been provided by the Ontario Creative Communities Prosperity Fund,
through the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport and matching funding
has been provided through the City of London Culture Office.
Open to all residents, the Cultural Mixer provides Londoners with an opportunity
to have input on the London Cultural Prosperity Plan before the final report
goes to Council in January 2013.
