Cul­tural ac­tion com­mit­tee

The Sudbury Star - - NEWS -

The Greater Sud­bury Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion is seek­ing six peo­ple to sit the cul­tural ac­tion com­mit­tee. The com­mit­tee was formed in 2015 as a re­sult of the coun­cil-en­dorsed Greater Sud­bury cul­tural plan 2015-2020, which demon­strates the city’s recog­ni­tion of the value of cul­ture in the com­mu­nity. The ac­tion plan, drafted to ac­com­pany the cul­tural plan, lays out spe­cific ac­tions within the four strate­gic di­rec­tions of creative iden­tity, creative peo­ple, creative places and creative econ­omy. It out­lines po­ten­tial ini­tia­tives, part­ners, re­sources and time­lines to help re­al­ize the goals of the plan. Mem­bers of the cul­tural ac­tion com­mit­tee will work with the cor­po­ra­tion’s arts and cul­ture busi­ness devel­op­ment of­fi­cer to pro­vide a cred­i­ble, ex­pert re­source for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the plan. The com­mit­tee will rep­re­sent the di­ver­sity among the city’s res­i­dents, busi­ness, ed­u­ca­tion, and its arts and cul­tural com­mu­ni­ties. It will serve as a fo­rum for so­lic­it­ing the opin­ions of the larger com­mu­nity on is­sues re­lated to the ac­tions iden­ti­fied in the cul­tural ac­tion plan. Com­mit­tee mem­bers will be se­lected with con­sid­er­a­tion to fair rep­re­sen­ta­tion of cul­tural and artis­tic dis­ci­plines, gen­der, geog­ra­phy and cul­tural di­ver­sity. Ap­pli­cants must be res­i­dents of Greater Sud­bury and must be at least 18 years old. Ap­point­ments are un­paid. The com­mit­tee will meet on a quar­terly ba­sis at Tom Davies Square, 200 Brady St. Com­mit­tee mem­bers will have the op­tion of a two- or three-year term. The dead­line to ap­ply is Mon­day, Nov. 20 at 4 p.m. For more in­for­ma­tion or to ap­ply, visit greater­sud­burycul­ture.ca or con­tact Jonathon Con­dratto at 705-674-4455 ext. 4429 or jonathon. con­dratto@greater­sud­bury.ca.
