OTTAWA, Oct. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - The Canada Council is launching a dialogue about how the arts bring value to the lives of Canadians and we invite you to join the conversation.
Read the discussion paper, Public Engagement in the Arts, on current thinking and practices in public engagement or check out Simon Brault's blog post on ways Canadians can have rich artistic experiences. Then share your thoughts on how to become actively engaged in the arts. Tell us what public engagement in the arts means to you by posting comments on the blog, on our Facebook page or on Twitter at hashtag #artsandpublic.
In its 2011-16 Strategic Plan, the Council identified public engagement in the arts as a strategic theme that infuses all of its work. We hope to broaden and enhance the public conversation about this topic and use this discussion to inform the development of future Council activities.
