The Grey Highlands Cultural Channel is an exciting initiative that brings community and culture together! You’ll be able to view posters and videos that shine a cultural spotlight on Grey Highlands and its surrounding areas – author readings, art displays, theatrical productions, musical performances, sports activities and more! Ongoing workshops are provided upon demand to help community members develop and submit content for the channel.
Find it on Channel 251 with digital cable. Our three library branches (Markdale, Flesherton & Kimberley) and the South Grey Museum have a GHCC viewing site for visitors as well.
GHCC YouTube: Check out our YouTube channel, where we have supplemental material involving information on the library and community. Subscribe today!
In 2014, the Grey Highlands Public Library and the South Grey Museum received funding through the Cultural Development Fund (Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport) that provided opportunities to increase and enhance the sustainability of the local cultural sector. Project endeavors included: policy and development training for local boards and advisory committees; the growth of community collaborations and partnerships, and public round-tables* to ignite and invite ideas and involvement.
In 2015 the partners, along with Eastlink (formerly Markdale Communications), announced the launch (PDF) of a new community cultural channel. This project was made possible with grant funding provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the Government of Ontario. We gratefully acknowledge Trillium for their role in this innovative venture!
In 2017, we also presented at the Ontario Library Association’s Super Conference to raise awareness of the cultural channel – find more information here!

These community workshops invite feedback and collaboration from community members and local cultural groups, while also providing digital technology and social media training.
