Get involved

Learn about our community engagement efforts.

More than 700 people took part in events between February and May 2023. Public events were open to community members across the region, and by-invitation session participants were recruited by members of our Steering Committee, Project Management Team, and, in many instances, with the generous help of community-based organizations. 

More opportunities to provide feedback will be made available when the draft cultural plan is released in early 2024.
