Arts, Culture & Heritage Strategic Plan

The draft 2015 – 2030 Arts, Culture & Heritage Strategic Plan (ACHSP) is a major milestone in the process to complete a long-range vision and implementation strategy that will raise the profile and enhance the arts, culture and heritage programs and services delivered in Coquitlam.

The ACHSP outlines five Strategic Goals with recommendations for a number of future actions to support the achievement of these goals.  Moreover, to deliver some early meaningful improvements, the ACHSP highlights top ten priorities as a short-term focus, followed by further actions to be pursued over time.  It expands on the vision outlined in the Cultural Services Strategic Plan (2010) by including goals, priorities and concrete actions to provide rich cultural experiences for all.
