Cultural Services leverages arts, culture and creative expression to build a vibrant and cohesive community, advance economic development, and support Brampton’s urban and neighbourhood transformation.
We strive to be connected and engaged cultural leaders, elevating the lived experience for residents and driving community attachment, facilitating opportunity and promoting our local creators, and amazing our visitors with the unrealized abundance that Brampton has to offer.
Brampton is a city where boundaries between cultural activities and creative entrepreneurship are blurred; bold and unabashed artistic and entrepreneurial activities take place in the context of an interconnected creative ecology.
