Course Description

Responding to the increase of arts and culture programming in the field of recreation, it is important for recreation professionals to hold a theoretical understanding for community cultural development (CCD) from community assessment, to funding models. In this class, students develop necessary arts administration skills by creating a CCD project proposal that addresses a need of a specific community group, develops partnership relations, and identifies the artist(s), culminating in the writing of a municipal cultural grant to support this proposal. Students examine and analyze collaborative community engagement with local, regional, and global points of view to expand their understanding on how to grow civic arts programming.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Bachelor of Recreation Management and the Diploma in Recreation Leadership.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of a minimum of 60 credits including a minimum "C" grade in six credits of university-transferable English or communications; and a minimum "C" grade in RECR 1160; or permission of the department.
