Lambton's Creative County Committee To Host Cultural Forums


Lambton's Creative County Committee will be hosting four Cultural Forums across the community next month.

The goal is to promote learning and collaboration across the cultural, arts, and heritage sectors of Lambton County. The forums will also provide the opportunity for prospective applicants to Lambton's Creative County Grant Program to discuss their ideas with County staff and other potential partners in their community.

In addition, the events will include demonstrations on writing effective grant applications and an overview of eligibility criteria and the related evaluation process.

Cultural Forums will be held during the month of September throughout the County, in anticipation of the grant intake period opening on October 2, 2017. Forum dates and locations are as follows:

Central Lambton 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., Thursday, September 7 Oil Museum of Canada - Theatre Room Oil Springs
