What is an Arts & Culture Plan?
An Arts & Culture Plan collects data from across communities, builds consensus among residents, and creates agreement on a vision for arts and culture in an area. This vision is then used to create policy frameworks, strategies, and an actionable plan to cultivate and support a thriving, sustainable arts and culture community for the benefit of everyone.
Why create an Arts & 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 attracting businesses, 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
