Red Deerians invited to attend community conversation

  • Oct. 18, 2016 7:20 p.m.

The City of Red Deer is hosting a community conversation in November with residents involved in the arts, culture and heritage sectors to capture the work that is being done in our community by many different organizations.

The world café-style event, called Culture Café, will allow City staff to dialogue with community members to identify how they are operating in the community. Feedback gathered will be used to provide City council with an updated progress report related to the implementation of the Community Culture Vision.

“We want to know what’s happening in the arts and culture community that is separate from the work being completed by the City so we can provide an accurate update and continue to move forward in the right direction,” said Tara O’Donnell, culture superintendent.

An update on the work that has been done by the City since the Community Culture Vision was published in 2008 will be provided, along with an overview on the support available to community groups through Culture Services.

Participants will also learn about the City’s Social Policy Framework and how it relates to a strong arts, culture and heritage sector. The Social Policy Framework guides the City’s roles and responsibilities to help strengthen our community socially.

The Culture Café will take place on Nov. 16th from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at the Golden Circle Senior Resource Centre (4620 47A Ave.)

Light refreshments will be provided.

The event is open to the public and anyone who contributes to Red Deer’s culture community is invited to attend. Those interested in participating are asked to RSVP by Nov. 10th to 403-309-4091 or culturemailbox@reddeer.ca.
