2029: Building Edmonton’s Community Plan for Arts & Heritage

With The Art of Living reaching its end, the EAC, on behalf of the City of Edmonton, is preparing Edmonton’s next comprehensive 10-year Arts and Heritage Plan. Since implementation of The Art of Living, Edmonton’s creative communities have grown and advanced to become a model of cooperation and resilience. This new plan will leverage the work of the Art of Living, and will guide and strengthen the City’s planning, investment, and ongoing development of the arts and heritage sectors.

The new 10-year Arts & Heritage Plan will be unique to Edmonton, and will provide strong recommendations that will infuse the arts into every aspect of the civic landscape. Edmontonians are encouraged to participate online and in the in-person consultations.
