The planning for Mi’kmawey Debert Cultural Centre (MDCC) is transitioning from planning processes to fund development and implementation. Taking small intentional steps is a strength that has served us well – one that will continue to guide us into the future.
The most recent planning process we have completed is the Functional Program for the MDCC. This document provides a statement of functional, and technical requirements for each of the spaces at the MDCC as well as the related site development.
MDCC has had excellent support from the Province and the Federal governments for the development of the Centre over the last ten years. We are currently negotiating a final decision on operating funds for the future Centre. Capital funding will be determined based on the final scale of operations. Conversations are underway to determine the level of these commitments.
We are also planning a fundraising campaign that will involve seeking support from individuals, corporations, foundations and other interested organizations, not only here in Atlantic Canada, but across the country and from international parties.
