The City of Brampton’s Arts, Culture & Creative Industry Development Agency (ACCIDA) has announced the founding advisory panel members who will help guide the growth and development of the agency.

A significant milestone for the organization, the inaugural panel is comprised of local artists and creators, business professionals and change makers who will be champions for Brampton’s artists.

The six members will join Nuvi Sidhu, inaugural chair, regional councillor Rowena Santos and Michael Vickers, senior program lead, in continuing ACCIDA’s mission of advancing, connecting and advocating for Brampton’s arts and culture sector.

“After an amazing interview process over the summer, we’re happy to announce a talented group of artists and professionals who will be joining the panel,” said Sidhu.

“I’m excited to get to work with the new advisory panel to set up ACCIDA and help artists across Brampton have their voices heard.”

ACCIDA is a unique organization focused on growing, celebrating, advocating for and connecting the sector through a variety of programs, services and resources that it has already begun to offer throughout 2021. This includes workshops, artist roundtables, exhibition opportunities and mentorship programs.
The six members of the advisory panel are Harman Grewal, Michael Halls, Sumit Judge, Vijai Kumar, Jael Richardson and Jaspreet Sandhu.
