The Power of Arts and Culture: A Strategy for Southern Georgian Bay and Beyond
Many great arts, culture, dining, and entertainment success stories exist across our region including: Blue Mountain Village, the Apple Pie Trail, Theatre Collingwood, Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts, Butter Gallery, Meaford Hall Arts and Cultural Centre, Matilda Swanson Gallery and other Clarksburg/Thornbury art galleries, Creative Simcoe Street, Simcoe Street Theatre and the Tremont Studios, Gayety Theatre, Marsh Street Centre, and the South Georgian Bay Music Foundation. The arts and culture sector is increasingly recognized in many studies as a key factor in economic development, including its multiplier effect, which enhances economic activity for many other businesses.
