THE POWER OF ARTS AND CULTURE: A Strategy for Southern Georgian Bay and Beyond

For a community of close to 100,000 persons, our region enjoys one of the largest concentrations of artists in Ontario. Considered by many as one of the most important sectors for building a vibrant and identifiable Southern Georgian Bay, we have seen that arts and culture binds us together. From woodturners to painters and photographers, from sculptors to ceramic and textile artists, from jewelry designers to actors, musicians, dancers, improv artists and writers, these remarkably talented people capture the beauty of our natural environment, share our stories with one another, reflect our history, and inspire us in so many ways.
