Community Partnerships Program

The Gathering Place by the Grand’s Community Partnerships Program was developed to support and foster the amazing voices within our community. Six Nations is a growing community, and with thousands of visitors every year, is a vibrant tourism destination. This program is available to groups whose programming directly benefits the Six Nations community and its members, and seeks to increase the profile of Six Nations locally, nationally or internationally. Programming can include, but is not limited to: education conferences, music concerts, workshops, dance performances, film screenings, readings, theatre presentations, and panel discussions.

Past successful applications include: Grand River Employment & Training, Six Nations Social Services Youth Life Promotions, Woodland Cultural Centre, Ganohkwasra Family Assault Support Services, Six Nations Long Term Care, and the Metis Women’s Circle.
