Leaders in creativity and innovation will support the Minister of Canadian Heritage as she seeks input from Canadians
OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - Department of Canadian Heritage
The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage announced the names of the Expert Advisory Group members who will support her as she seeks input from Canadians on how to strengthen the creation, discovery and export of Canadian content in a digital world.
The members, selected on the basis of their personal experience, expertise and ability to generate and inspire innovative ideas, represent a cross-section of the Canadian arts and culture sectors. The multidisciplinary group will provide advice and ongoing feedback as the Minister consults Canadians and examines the government's current cultural policy toolkit.
More information about the broader Canadian Content in a Digital World consultation will be released during summer 2016. Canadians will have opportunities in the fall to express their views on how to ensure that Canada's cultural and creative industries remain drivers of innovation and a vibrant part of the Canadian economy.
"Given the importance and the breadth of these consultations, I am pleased that I can count on a group of creative and innovative experts with a diversity of skills to provide me with key feedback throughout the process. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their participation and the interest and enthusiasm they've shown so far in this exercise. Stay tuned for the next steps-the conversation is just getting started."
