OAC Strategic Planing survey


Click here to hear an audio version of this message

The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) has embarked on a process to develop a new strategic plan and we are currently in the information gathering stage. As a first step in our consultations with the arts community, we invite you to share your thoughts and experience with us by completing a short survey. The survey asks for your perspectives on the opportunities and challenges currently facing Ontario artists and arts organizations. We will use the survey responses to inform the development of our new strategic plan over the next few months – with the launch of the new plan next spring.

Strategic plans guide organizations in fulfilling their mandates by creating goals, and crafting strategies to achieve these goals. At OAC, we are committed to including a broad range of perspectives in our strategic planning process so that we can be confident that our plan best meets the needs of the Ontario arts community and reflects our current realities. While we will never be all things to all people, we do want to do our best to reflect Ontario and Ontarians, so it’s important that we hear from you as we begin this planning journey.

We recognize that this is a busy time of year with many of you looking forward to the summer season. We hope that you will take a few moments to participate in this survey. The link is below.

Please help us reach beyond the pool of Ontario artists and arts organizations already familiar with OAC. To do this, please pass this email to one to three people who are artists or who work with arts organizations who you think would provide interesting, informed perspectives, but may not yet have had contact with OAC.

Deadline to complete the survey: midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, July 7, 2013.
