Event Information

One Region - The Collaboration Effect will bring arts champions together from across the Capital Region to reflect on the cultural moment we create and work in. The event is an opportunity for artists, cultural workers, municipal staff and elected officials to share experiences and connect.

At the summit you will:

  • Hear stories from arts champions at the intersection of art, systemic change and collaboration
  • Connect with others in the arts community;
  • Find out mechanisms for supporting arts practices that make a community impact;
  • Provide feedback on the progress of the Arts Implementation Plan; and
  • Celebrate the ability of the arts sector to transcend municipal boundaries and, at the same time, foster a unique local arts scene.
