Defining Ottawa Together: Culture in the Official Plan
On behalf of the Cultural Development and Initiatives (CDI) Section…
HOLD THE DATE!
Thursday, October 17th, 2 to 6 pm.
Ottawa City Hall (Andrew S. Haydon Hall, Council Chambers)
We hope to support the development of Ottawa as an international cultural capital that:
works toward reconciliation and decolonization;
offers meaning and quality of life to all residents; and
attracts talent, tourists and business.
The session will include an international panel, a short video of interview highlights from a cross-section of Ottawa citizens, and important opportunities for input through maps, ideas and words.
Your voice and experience in Ottawa are important to us! Community engagement is key.
Where do you live and work? Are there cultural opportunities in the neighbourhood in which you live? Near your workplace?
Do you walk, cycle, take public transit or drive to access culture? How far are you willing to travel to access cultural opportunities in the city?
If you could redesign your neighbourhood, what cultural improvements might you suggest?
What are the culturally significant places and spaces in Ottawa that you hope are protected for future generations?
What is the ‘living’ culture that makes your neighbourhood and the city unique? How can we safeguard, support and develop these practices?
