Ontario Culture TalksEvents and Meetings
This fall, Jane Farrow and Caitlin Myles criss-crossed Ontario hosting a series of 11 Culture Talks for the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport. These public consultations will inform Ontario’s first ever culture strategy. Each evening began with an on-stage interview led by Jane Farrow with authors, poets, musicians, and other cultural luminaries about the role of culture in their lives, the community, and the province. These discussions set the tone for the rest of the evening, where participants engaged in a series of self-guided small group activities to generate recommendations for the culture strategy. The Culture Talks attracted crowds across the province - averaging 100 participants at each, and drawing some 375 in Toronto.
