Title:    Cultural Performances for Council Policy - Wolanski
Department: Community & Protective Services  
Strategic Vision Element: Where People Choose to Live - A dynamic city with an exceptional quality of life Related Goal: Spruce Grove has a well-balanced arts and culture environment that reflects the interests and needs of the community.

Request for Decision Summary
The City of Spruce Grove is growing as a cultural event hub in the region.  The organization is getting multiple requests for local performers to present something before council meetings. 

The Cultural Performances for Council Policy will outline the requirements, selection and performance time and dates for future council chambers performances.

Proposed Motion
That the Cultural Performances for Council Policy CP-1006-18 be approved as presented.

In the past, there has been no clear intent or method for artistic performances prior to council sessions or committee meetings.  This policy will strengthen and professionalize the process and ensure that council and the public is entertained, and meeting business is conducted on schedule.

All performance requests are directed to the Director of Cultural Services who will schedule performances for council on specific meeting dates, no more than four times a year.
Performance scheduling to continue on an ad hoc basis.
Input for this policy has been gathered by various departments, vetted by SLT and edited by the City Clerk's office.
The implementation will be mostly internal to start with the Director of Cultural Services handling communications and requests from performers. Once that is established, the Director will also assist in soliciting performances as need be.
As our community grows with cultural talent, this gives an equitable opportunity to showcase artists in the area. We will show our cultural community that they are valued at a council level.
