Superior North Youth Arts and Culture Strategy

The Township of Nipigon is proud to release the Superior North Youth Arts and Culture Strategy, prepared by Laridae Communications.  This document will be a first step in enhancing the arts in the communities of Dorion, Red Rock, Nipigon, and Lake Helen.  Goals of the project include:

  • exploring the potential to develop arts and culture infrastructure aimed at youth aged 12-25
  • assessing demand in the target population and broader communities for creative arts programs
  • assessing gaps and opportunities relating to arts infrastructure, including potential program mentors and funding sources for arts programming and infrastructure.
  • consultations with youth and their communities, partners, and stakeholders on all of the above

This document will be shared by all four communities working together to leverage funding and human resources to establish a regional, vibrant arts and culture scene that encourages the engagement of youth with and without barriers to become leaders, volunteers, and entrepreneurs.

The strategy will be officially launched at a public event being held in the Nipigon Community Centre (Multi-Purpose Room) on Wednesday, September 27th @ 6:30 pm.   A brief overview of the strategy will be given, and light refreshments served.  If enhancing the arts in our communities is important to you, please attend this event!  We want your input on how the strategy’s recommendations can be implemented.
