National Day of Truth and Reconciliation
We wish you a productive and reflective National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.
NCTR Resources

The CCNC office will be closed on September 30 in recognition of the first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. How will you be spending the day? Look for local events to attend, wear an orange shirt, read from the many available Indigenous resources, learn about the history of the land you live on, and celebrate Indigenous art and culture in your area. CCNC hosts some resources in our library:

Using Data to Make Culture Part of Local Economic Recovery

Thursday, November 25, 2021

CCNC Members are invited to the final National Call for Members of 2021. We will be focusing on date literacy: turning raw GDP and economic data to reinforce the role of culture in your local economic recovery. 

More information will be sent to members in October. To take part in this event, become a CCNC member.

Annual General Meeting

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 17, 2021. The AGM will take place on Zoom. All Municipal Members are encouraged to send one representative or assign a proxy. 

The agenda will include a presentation from Hill Strategies on Phase 1 of the Cultural Resilience project, which, this past summer, resulted in over 200 stories of innovation by arts organizations across Canada to survive during the worst of the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

Call for CCNC Board Members

The Creative City Network of Canada is seeking nominations for the Board of Directors. Anyone working for a Municipal Member may be nominated or self-nominate. Please reach out if you did not receive the link to the nomination form in a previous Members News email. 

Deadline: October 1, 2021

Are you part of a municipality working toward elevated cultural policy and practices, a cultural organization working closely with your local government or community, or an individual consultant, artist, or student who could benefit from proximity to local culture workers?

The fabric of our network is made up of a diverse and exciting array of voices from three membership types, all working towards strengthening their local culture presence.

As a network, our members are each other's best resources for best practices, knowledge sharing, and support. As a national organization, CCNC strives to foster meaningful relationships, build bridges, and support culture workers working at the local and community level. We offer programs, opportunities to connect and share, research, and an ever-evolving and improving online portal environment to support our members in their work. 

We need your voice at the table.
