What is an Arts and Culture Plan?

An arts and culture plan collects data from across communities, builds consensus among residents and creatives, and creates agreement on a vision for arts and culture. This vision is then used to create policy frameworks, funding strategies, and an actionable plan to cultivate and support a thriving, sustainable arts and culture community that benefits everyone.

Why create an Arts and Culture Plan for Charlotte?

Arts and culture are central to providing a vibrant quality of life for all people, and play an important role in economic development by supporting local businesses and attracting new residents and visitors to a city. Studies show that arts and culture benefits communities in many ways: enriching education, improving mental and physical health, increasing public safety, fostering innovation, and more.
