Arts, Culture & Museum Committee

The Arts, Culture & Museum Committee endeavours to promote an awareness of and appreciation for arts, cultural, and heritage activities within our community. The committee looks forward to connecting you with many talented organizations and persons in our city. They host special events, awards ceremonies and have links with various Community Groups.  Check out the Arts, Culture & Museum Committee page for details.

City of Niagara Falls Culture Plan

In 2015, City Council for Niagara Falls approved a Culture Plan to identify, leverage and strengthen the community’s cultural resources. It will result in a better awareness of the City’s cultural resources, an improved quality of life for residents, opportunities to recognize and develop the cultural sector as both a cultural asset and an economic engine, as well as create improved opportunities for artists and cultural organizations to network, and to showcase or exhibit their artistic talent.

Culture Summit

In November of 2015, the first Cultural Summit was held at the MacBain Community Centre. The public, artists and cultural organizations were invited to participate in dialogue about the next steps in the City of Niagara Falls Culture Plan.  The results of those meetings will assist in the development of the short term goals for the Culture Plan. Thanks to the Niagara Community Foundation for their support of this summit.  Stay tuned for details on the 2016 Summit.

Arts & Culture - Wall of Fame

The Arts & Culture Committee's Purpose is to foster, develop and unite artistic and cultural activities in the community. Through an Arts & Culture Wall of Fame initiative the community will have the opportunity to celebrate the many outstanding accomplishments of its past and present citizens, as well as the works of art that reflect the best of Niagara Falls. View the inductees to the Wall of Fame.

Events Calendar
