The Cultural Master Plan

Feasibility Study Pic

Cultural activities and facilities have substantial tangible benefits for a growing city like Grande Prairie. Among other things, they provide young families and newcomers, as well as long-standing residents, with opportunities and places to actively participate in community life. 

The Cultural Master Plan looks at ways to collaborate to apply for cultural funding to support for indoor and outdoor cultural spaces and facilities. 

Strategic Directions for the Plan include:

  1. Demonstrate leadership in developing a financially stable and sustainable environment for culture in the City of Grande Prairie.
  2. Integrate cultural considerations into municipal planning.
  3. Increase public awareness of the value of arts and culture and encourage participation in arts and cultural activities in the larger community
  4. Develop programs to engage the City’s growing and increasingly diverse population.
  5. Ensure equal access to cultural opportunities, with a particular focus on the Aboriginal population, New Canadians and youth.
  6. Complete the development of state of the art flagship institutions.
  7. Enhance outdoor cultural programming in the Montrose site, Downtown and Muskoseepi Park.
  8. Foster greater collaboration within the cultural community, in the City, County and Peace Region.
