Community dialogue on arts and culture sparks ideas
Mission, BC—Local residents came together to share their ideas, visions and aspirations for Mission’s arts and culture scene at the first in-person Community Conversations event held last Wednesday at the new Boswyk Center.
During the evening, attendees discussed their thoughts on promotion, facilities and engagement directly with members of City Council. Residents also shared their personal definitions of what culture means to them and what they think Mission values are.
“It was great to see people of all ages discussing arts and culture,” said Mayor Paul Horn. “It is clear to all Council members that people here see the arts as a key way to preserve and enhance our community spirit, and as an area where we need to energize our facilities and events.
Comments shared during the discussions will be used alongside comments shared as part of the arts and culture survey and summarized in an engagement report on what we heard. This report will be used to inform future projects and guide the Council in its future decision-making related to arts and culture.
The investigation remains open on Engage Mission until May 22.
The next topic in the Community Conversations series centers on downtown Mission, with an in-person event scheduled for June 15 at Copper Hall.
