The UBC Centre for Cultural Planning and Development is an international centre dedicated to the creation and strengthening of a global community of professionals advancing cultural development as a vital component of successful communities and sustainable growth. It was launched in August 2011 as a legacy to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games with founding investment by 2010 Legacies Now and the Province of British Columbia.
By engaging the strengths of international leaders in the field of cultural planning and development, the Centre educates, trains and supports cultural planning and development through university-level courses and programs, research, and the exchange of successful practice, in a context of critical thinking with a global perspective.
