Renée was seconded to lead a large inter-departmental team for the Halifax Regional Municipality. The project includes targeted engagement with: Mi’kmaw, African Nova Scotian, Acadian & Francophone, Immigrant, and Accessibility communities. The project will result in a set of principles, objectives, and actions that will inform the next Regional Plan.
The municipality supports arts, culture and heritage in many ways including festivals, public art, heritage buildings, natural landscapes, archives, libraries, grants, and museum. The 2014 Regional Plan identified the need to create a plan to assist the municipality in clarifying its vision, principles and priorities to more effectively guide investments and decisions related to arts, culture and heritage. The plan is currently being reviewed internally.
