Arts & Culture Committee

The purpose of the Arts and Culture Committee is to help position Orangeville as the artistic hub for the Headwaters Region.

The Arts and Culture Committee partners with key stakeholders to increase the overall level of arts activity in Orangeville; supports major arts and culture events in Town, supports growth and development of new and emerging young artists, supports and promotes existing arts and culture initiatives, and provides a forum for ideas to make Orangeville a vibrant centre and destination.

In recognition of the growing importance of arts and culture initiatives to Orangeville's economy, the Town of Orangeville has developed a Cultural Plan that will solidify Orangeville as a vibrant hub and destination for arts and culture.

The Committee also recognizes the contributions that arts and culture provides to the community through the organization of an annual Arts and Culture Awards event.  These awards are presented each year at the Celebration of the Arts and a list of recipients by year is available online.
