News Release

The Town of Milton is developing its first Culture Plan to provide direction for investment in culture across Milton. The plan will demonstrate a commitment to local culture and recognize its importance to Milton’s vibrant, inclusive and engaged community. 

“As Milton grows, culture will tie our community together and create a shared experience for our residents and visitors,” said Joy Anderson, Director of Culture and Community Development. “Through its storytelling and recognition of our past and present, the plan will envision a path forward for Milton’s cultural identity that is reflective of our community.”

In phase one of the Culture Plan, the Town is asking Milton residents and visitors about their cultural experiences, feedback and ideas. In addition to understanding culture more broadly in Milton, the plan will also seek to understand how the community has shifted their experience and work in culture as a result of COVID-19.

Individuals can contribute in a number of ways including an online survey, virtual drop-in events and artist-led culture conversations at pop-ups in the community. All events have been set up in accordance with COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

Phase two and three of the culture planning process will occur later this fall and through the winter with the goal of completion in winter 2021.
