REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: Squamish Community Engagement Consultant for the Vancouver Creative City Strategy

The City of Vancouver is developing a
Creative City Strategy (CCS) – a new, comprehensive plan for arts, culture and
creativity that will guide future priorities, efforts and investments. As part
of engagement with Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, the City
would like to work with a Community Engagement Coordinator from each First
Nation.

The Community Engagement Coordinator will work with Kamala Todd, Indigenous Arts and Culture Planner, and with other City staff to help build relationships and generate meaningful Squamish input and involvement in the CCS. While this work is specific to the CCS process, it is part of the larger goals of building relationships between the host Nations and Cultural Services more generally and finding ways for the host Nations to be more directly involved in arts and culture decision-making and place-making in their territories.
