Cultural Services is a new City department that provides leadership, advances and promotes activities that support arts groups and cultural organizations in the Municipality and region, including the Brockville Arts Centre, Brockville Museum, and Brockville Tourism.


We believe arts and culture inspires our communities and enhances quality of life. We bring our creativity, knowledge and skills to foster inclusive and collaborative connections through the City’s cultural spaces, both physical and virtual.


Our passionate and professional team cultivates an engaged and energized public through diverse and meaningful programming, promoting dialogue and understanding between arts and culture and our communities.
