Canadian Arts Summit —
convening Canadian thought leaders to work together in strengthening Canada’s arts sector
In 1998 The Council for Business and the Arts in Canada and The Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity invited the chairs, executive directors and artistic directors of 20 of Canada’s largest arts organizations to a “Summit”. That first Summit was predicated upon the belief that these influential leaders – volunteers, artists and managers – could, by working together, better support Canadian artistic aspirations.
At the core of the Canadian Arts Summit are the following strategic intentions:
- To achieve a common understanding of the state and value of the arts in Canada.
- To enhance the awareness and resourcing of the arts in Canada.
- To collaborate for the development of strategies and best practices to strengthen the sector and its constituents.
Summit participants believe that, if the importance of the arts within society is to be understood and treated seriously, it is up to everyone involved in the sector, in their individual roles as leaders, to communicate the facts.
