Have Your Say on Arts and Culture in Waterloo Region! - Municipal Candidates Prepare to Weigh in

THEMUSEUM is once again hosting a lively conversation on arts and culture in Waterloo Region. A Cultural Exchange 7.0 will be held in the atrium on Wednesday, October 3.

Local candidates from Wards 9 and 10, as well as those running for Regional Chair and Kitchener Mayor, have been invited to discuss how best to support the local arts and culture scene. Members of the general public are welcome to attend, as are members of cultural organizations and institutions.

“It’s very important to engage with our elected officials at the local level,” said David Marskell, CEO, THEMUSEUM. “This is not intended to be a debate; it’s an opportunity for candidates to share their views so the general public can better understand their position.”

Each candidate will have a finite amount of time to share their stance on arts and culture. This will then be followed by a brief discussion led by arts and culture representatives and members of the public. Candidates will move from table to table to ensure they have a chance to meet with everyone throughout the evening. After each rotation, representatives from local organizations will speak about their upcoming projects and initiatives.

Martin de Groot, the arts columnist for The Record, will MC the event. Admission to A Cultural Exchange 7.0 is free, with a suggested donation of $7.00. Doors open at 6:00 and the exchange begins at 6:45pm sharp. This is a licensed event.

Please RSVP here. is distributed twice weekly; Tuesday and Thursday
