Have your say in the local arts scene in Parksville Qualicum Beach

The Oceanside Community Arts Council wants to hear from residents

The Oceanside Community Arts Council (OCAC) is looking for your help.

The not-for-profit organization has created an online survey to learn how the community feels about the current arts and culture environment and what people would like to see in the future.

“We want to know what the community wants,” said Linda Matteson-Renyolds, administrator at the McMillan Arts Centre.

According to a news release, the OCAC aims to encourage and support arts and culture as part of the daily lives of citizens, thus benefiting the community and artists.

The survey is part of OCAC’s current planning process to define its direction and priorities for the next five years so it matches the public’s priorities.

OCAC president Joe Straka said: “The council’s board of directors is seeking to understand the expectations of the community with respect to the arts.”

The survey, which is hosted by Survey Monkey, takes around 15 minutes or less to complete. Only one response to this survey may be created on each computer or IP address. You can find the survey at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/OCAC_2014
