Share the Story of Your Project

Have a community engagement project that you’d like to share? By sharing our stories, whether of completed projects or those currently in-process, we can support and learn from each other. We encourage you to be open and honest - share what worked, what didn’t, and what you are learning along the way.

Simply fill out the information below to share your story and inspire others!

We want to feature projects in this Idea Box that truly encapsulate community engagement, rather than outreach or audience development. If you are considering submitting a project, we’d love to support you through the process. Please contact Natalie at natalie [at] ontariopresents [dot] ca or 416 703 6709 ext. 5.

If you have already submitted a project and would like to update, change, or add any information, please contact Natalie.
