2017 Call for New Members

2017 Call for New Members

Are you interested in helping to shape the future of the province’s investment in cultural development? We are currently seeking volunteers to join the Creative Nova Scotia Leadership Council (CNSLC).

The Council serves as an advisory body to the Nova Scotia government on matters of cultural policy and cultural sector development. The volunteer council, in partnership with government, advises and makes recommendations to the Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage on matters pertaining to Nova Scotia’s creative sector. In this capacity, Council is committed to enhancing cultural activity in the Province through strategic research and consultation leading to informed recommendations on investment, promotion and preservation. A major focus of Council’s current work is to support the implementation of the 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.

The Council’s selection committee and two other sector members will recommend volunteers for the 15-member council.  The committee is seeking a range of experience among Council members and will work to strike a balanced perspective that includes knowledge and expertise from the creative industries, the heritage sector, cultural institutions and community cultural development. The committee is dedicated to developing a Council that is representative of the Province’s breadth of ethnic, cultural and regional diversity and welcomes applicants from all cultural interests.

The Council meets every six weeks from September to June and reimburses its volunteer members for out-of-pocket travel expenses. Applicants are also required to serve on Council sub-committees, which meet outside regularly scheduled Council sessions.
