- Every BCC organization is equal in the consortium.
- Every organization has something unique to offer others and the collective whole.
- Projects and initiatives are to benefit each of our organizations and the collective whole.
The BCC is an extraordinary model of culture district ‐ as we are a consortium and not a separate incorporated non‐profit organization. It was created by the existing arts and culture organizations themselves. It was not created by a city and is not funded by the city at all (or any level of government, currently). Unfortunately, the Bloor St. Culture Corridor does not fit most government funders guidelines. We believe that new funding in Toronto and Canada is needed for operational support for this unique model of partnership, sector development, cultural cluster, and public district.
When government funding is obtained, one BCC organization is the lead applicant on behalf of all Bloor St. Culture Corridor partner organizations. Currently, each Bloor St. Culture Corridor contributes an annual cost‐sharing fee. This only covers communications costs (the website, brochure, emails, street banners, social media, and email communications).
The Bloor St. Culture Corridor is a consortium of partner organizations who all contribute time as well as finances. Each organization is expected to both contribute to, and benefit from, the partnership and being part of the network.
