  • Connections & Exchanges: A 10 Year Plan to Transform Arts and Heritage in Edmonton

    Have you read the City of Edmonton’s new 10-year cultural strategy yet?

    Connections & Exchanges: A 10 Year Plan to Transform Arts and Heritage in Edmonton is a bold and collaborative plan to infuse culture, heritage, and the arts into every aspect of Edmonton’s civic fabric, support culture makers, and grow Edmontonians connection and participation in heritage and the arts.

    Connections & Exchanges will catalyze the heritage sector to be even more collaborative, more innovative, more inclusive, and more dynamic in our approaches to researching, interpreting, preserving, and advocating for the stories of our city. 

    As a critical guiding document for the growth and evolution of the heritage ecosystem in Edmonton, we encourage you to read, reflect, and share this new vision for our work as we pursue more inclusive and diverse stories of our city.

The Edmonton Heritage Council is a not-for-profit organization that supports and promotes heritage in Edmonton and the surrounding region.
