2018 Call for New Members


Seeking Volunteers for the Creative Nova Scotia Leadership Council

Are you interested in contributing your voice, perspective, and experience to the future of cultural development in Nova Scotia? We are currently seeking volunteers to join the Creative Nova Scotia Leadership Council (CNSLC).

In partnership with government, CNSLC advises and makes recommendations to the Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage. The aim is to enhance cultural vitality through strategic research, data analysis, and outreach, leading to informed recommendations on investment, preservation, and promotion of culture. A current focus is supporting the implementation of Nova Scotia’s Culture Action Plan, a long-term provincial strategy for culture.

The activities of Council are guided under the authority of the Creative Nova Scotia Leadership Council Act.

CNSLC meets every six weeks from September to June and reimburses out-of-pocket travel expenses. Members are also required to serve on sub-committees, which meet outside regularly scheduled meetings.

The Nominations committee plus two external sector representatives will recommend volunteers for the 15-member council. The committee seeks an inclusive and balanced representation of the creative industries, the broad culture sector, lived experiences, and interests. The committee strongly encourages applicants from across Nova Scotia’s ethnic, cultural, and geographic communities.

Deadline for applications: March 8, 2018
