Take part in shaping a cultural strategy for PEI

We are all Island culture. It is the things we make - art, writing, and crafts. It is the words we use. It is our buildings, our monuments, our fields and our beaches. It is the way we talk to each other. It makes us who we are. We each know it when we see it.

Open dialogue is essential to the development and understanding of culture and cultural policy in Prince Edward Island. While there is much to be done, the strategy will ensure that both social and economic positive and long-term impacts are achieved.

We are in the process of developing a provincial cultural strategy for PEI and we hope you will take part.

What is the purpose of the consultation?

This consultation process is an opportunity for citizens to participate in creating future policy. We are eager to engage, to listen and to dialogue. Information about the consultations will be posted here and on the PEI Cultural Strategy Facebook Group, where you can join in on the conversation.

The Province will launch a 10-year cultural strategy in September 2017.

What do we hope to learn?

  • “What is a healthy culture?”
  • “How does our culture contribute to the social and economic well-being of Prince Edward Island citizens?”
  • “How can the Province best support the economic and social well-being of citizens through cultural supports and programs?”

Post and share comments on our Facebook page and we will collect it.

How do I get involved?

To-date, many Islanders have contributed to the development of a strategy by taking part in coffee shop pop-ups hosted in seven locations across the province in April and May. Key stakeholders are taking part in roundtables, focus groups and interviews.

Public Survey: What does Island culture mean to you?

Please take 10 to 15 minutes to shape this strategy by telling us what Island culture means to you. Your answers will help us better understand the role of Island culture in supporting the social and economic wellbeing of Islanders.

You can also post and share comments on our Facebook page and we will collect it.
