"As a manager responsible for cultural planning processes for our municipality I wanted to have a solid theoretical background and to use that in supporting the development of a cultural planning strategy for our community.  The Foundations of Cultural Planning and then Creating Culture Plans courses really gave me the knowledge base I was looking for. I find I apply the learnings regularly working with our staff; evaluating our current plan and looking forward to future planning exercises.  I found the course so beneficial and the online format so accessible that I will be recommending these and other Centre for Cultural Planning courses that are offered to our staff and other professionals in the Culture field."
