HOW WE STARTED

A BIT ABOUT US

In 2019,  Beausoleil First Nation, the Towns of Midland and Penetanguishene, and the Townships of Tay and Tiny formed the Culture Alliance in the Heart of Georgian Bay.  These communities recognized that culture in our area was not defined by municipal boundaries and elected to work together to celebrate, foster, promote and leverage cultural resources within the Heart of Georgian Bay.

 Some of the strategic priorities for the Culture Alliance include support for creative individuals; support for cultural groups and organizations; support for events and activities; promoting the region; supporting heritage; and funding.  Review the committee's Terms of Reference here.

À notre sujet

En 2019, la Première nation Beausoleil, les villes de Midland et de Penetanguishene, et les cantons de Tay et de Tiny, ont formé l’Alliance de la culture au cœur de la baie Georgienne. Ces communautés reconnaissent que la culture de la région dépasse les frontières municipales et choisissent de collaborer pour célébrer et cultiver les ressources culturelles au cœur de la baie Georgienne, en faire la promotion et les mettre à profit.

L’Alliance de la culture a adopté certaines priorités stratégique notamment l’appui des personnes créatives; l’appui des groupes et organismes culturels; l’appui des événements et activités; la promotion de la région; le soutien du patrimoine; et le financement.  Examiner le mandat du comité ici.
