A municipality is responsible for planning ways to ensure quality of life for its residents. According to the Creative Cities Network, municipal cultural planning is a process of inclusive community consultations and decision-making that helps local government identify cultural resources and think strategically about how these resources can help a community to achieve its civic goals. While roads, education and even sewers are a part of these plans, many municipalities are finding that an increased focus on municipal cultural planning can have a huge impact – and give them an extra advantage in future growth and stronger communities.
SaskCulture is eager to help support the work of municipalities interested in cultural planning by offering consultation, funding opportunities and links to informative resources. Together, we all benefit, as culture builds community!
