In September 2014, the Grey Highlands Public Library and the South Grey Museum, in partnership with the Municipality of Grey Highlands, 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 endeavours included: policy and development training for local boards and advisory committees; the growth of community collaborations and partnerships, and public roundtables 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 thanks to funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
These ongoing community workshops are designed to invite feedback and collaboration from community members and local cultural groups, and to provide digital technology and social media training. Roundtable information and content is archived at www.visitgreyhighlands.ca (select the Cultural Roundtable tab at the top of the page).
In partnership with Eastlink, the Grey Highlands Public Library and the South Grey Museum launched the new Grey Highlands Cultural Channel. The channel provides an additional access point for the promotion of local cultural and heritage information. Ongoing workshops are provided to help community members develop and edit content for the channel. Click here for more information on how to submit!
