Online survey: Draft Creative City Strategy

Over the past 18+ months, we’ve engaged a broad spectrum of voices from the arts and culture community to help develop the Creative City Strategy. Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh visibility and voice on the land are central to this process.

Informed by this feedback, we've developed the draft Creative City Strategy to share. What do you think of the draft plan and what matters most to you?

In this survey, you’ll be able to review the proposed goals and recommendations. Your feedback will help inform the Creative City Strategy that goes to Vancouver City Council in September 2019.

The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and closes on Monday, June 24 at noon.
