DURHAM ART OF TRANSITION CREATIVE AWARDS

Description: Created through an initiative from the Art of Transition symposium, the Durham Art of Transition Creative Awards (DATCA) has inspired public engagement throughout the community. The evening continues to recognize individuals and groups who are strengthening the community by celebrating and promoting creativity, innovation and collaboration. In late November, the 4th annual event saw a panel of judges - made up of community leaders - review 37 nominations in 11 categories, and select award recipients based on the impact of their contribution with factors including uniqueness, effectiveness, influence and sustainability. The evening was presented by The Regional Municipality of Durham, Planning and Economic Development Department
