Port Moody’s Cultural Services division began in 1995 when the City hired its first Cultural Services Coordinator just as the new Civic Complex and Inlet Theatre opened to the public. As the role of Cultural Services grew, so did the division. The Theatre became busier, the public art collection grew and the number of festivals and events quickly increased. Today, the Cultural Services division includes five regular staff, and forms an important part of the Community Services department. The key functions of Cultural Services include:

  • Managing and implementing public art projects and the StreetArts Banner Program
  • Managing the rentals and activities of Inlet Theatre, the Galleria and the stage at Rocky Point Park
  • Supporting local arts and culture groups such as the Port Moody Arts Centre Society, Port Moody Heritage Society and ArtsConnect
  • Supporting local arts and culture events and festivals such as PoMo ArtsFest, Summer Sunday Concerts and the Port Moody Canadian Film Festival
  • Coordinating filming activities in Port Moody
  • Assisting with planning and executing City events such as the Committee Volunteer Appreciation Dinner, Canada Day Ceremony and Spike Business Awards
  • Managing the 2709 Esplanade Artist Studios
  • Providing support to the City’s Arts and Culture Committee
