The 20th Annual Canadian Arts Summit takes place May 12-14, 2017 at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown, PEI.
The Canadian Arts Summit was founded in 1998 by The Banff Centre and Business for the Arts (then known as the Council for Business and the Arts in Canada).
The Canadian Arts Summit is a unique national leadership forum. It is held in the spring of each year and brings together the chief executives, artistic directors, and board chairs of Canada’s largest 80 not-for-profit cultural institutions: symphony orchestras, theatres, opera and ballet companies, as well as heritage and art museums — primarily those with budgets over $5 million.
The Summit is predicated upon the belief that these influential leaders — volunteers, artists, and managers — can, by working together, develop the strengths required to support Canadian artistic aspirations. The Summit has become not just a weekend event in the spring, but an ongoing network of arts leaders working together, through the Steering Committee, throughout the year.
