  2. Fall 2021 Community Conversations

The Fall 2021 community conversations will explore and expand on the core themes of Canada Council for the Arts’ 2021-26 Strategic Plan: Art, now more than ever

To allow us to hear from individuals in the arts sector facing diverse realities, we are hosting two 90-minute conversations on Tuesday, November 30, and on Wednesday, December 1, 2021.

These virtual sessions are an invitation to exchange ideas and proposals to move forward together towards a sustainable recovery and rebuilding of the sector. The same three key themes: innovation, equity and partnership, will be addressed at each of these two sessions. 

We look forward to collaborating with every one of you on the implementation of the 2021-26 Strategic Plan.  This includes exploring and expanding on the perspectives outlined within Art, now more than ever.  

We hope you will join us in dialogue and action towards a strengthened arts sector.
