This plan provides a framework to integrate culture into municipal priorities and decision making, and aims to build a shared language across sectors and a common understanding of how culture can serve diverse priorities. The Inspire St. Catharines: Culture Plan 2020 is a tool for the City to respond to the challenges facing the community. It identifies issues in the planning, organization and delivery of culture, explores the links between culture and sustainability, and defines cultural priorities and initiatives for the City and its community partners to implement. The success of the plan relies on the City working with cultural groups and organizations, service providers, the business community and the community at large. This plan will nurture a healthy and vibrant community for now and for years to come and reinforce cultural sustainability as one of the four major pillars of the community’s sustainable future.
