Beyond Culture Shock

Through a one-day workshop, sector leaders, artists, cultural workers, experts and policy makers explored barriers and opportunities for newcomers in the creative economy.


The Dept organized, programmed and facilitated a one-day workshop on culture policy and diversity in partnership with the Ismaili Council for Ontario, the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport and the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration. The Policy Dialogue brought together sector leaders, artists, cultural workers, experts and policy makers to discuss both barriers and opportunities for newcomers in the creative economy.


The dialogue produced the policy document: Beyond Culture Shock 2018: Breaking Down Barriers for Newcomer and Immigrant Success in the Creative Economy
