Draft Vision and Principles
The final phase of the Sharing Our Stories project is underway and is targeting completion in summer 2019. The following highlights the draft vision and principles that are guiding the Plan’s development:
Culture is about sharing our stories.
Culture communicates our unique experiences and identities in Halifax Regional Municipality. It’s about people; the places where we gather, traditions we pass on, things we create, music we play, buildings we preserve, food we eat, and much more. This plan is about supporting culture and heritage by creating a set of priorities to improve and direct our investments, programs, policies, and partnerships. Core principles to the actions and priorities proposed in this plan are:
Belonging - Everyone is welcome. We will reflect and create opportunities to celebrate the diversity of identities, cultures and heritages in the region.
Adaptability - Culture is constantly changing. We will create new ways to support culture that are responsive to opportunities and changes.
Stewardship - Culture has value. We will support the celebration and preservation of the stories, objects, buildings, and places that are valued by municipal residents.
