Virtual Conversation Summary

  • by

Sarah Garton Stanley and Yvette Nolan discuss Canadian cultural policy, how we got here and how we move forward.

Hosted by Taiwo Afolabi and Deniz Ünsal

In this virtual conversation, Yvette Nolan and Sarah Garton Stanley discussed the tall shadow of the Massey Report, the shifting landscape and how Canadian cultural policy is responding to the shift. They recount the history of the Massey Report and the need for policy to reflect the current socio-cultural, political, and economic milieu. This means that Canadian cultural policy in the arts sector, “a set of statutes, policies and programs designed to support the development of artistic expression,” needs to adapt to the present sectoral needs and engage various departments, agencies, cultures, and stakeholders; and build clearly for the future for an equitable sector.
