The City of Charlotte continues to offer the public the opportunity to contribute to the arts and culture plan


CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (September 2, 2022) – The City of Charlotte and the Arts and Culture Advisory Council announce additional public engagement events in September and October, and share tools that residents, artists, creatives, patrons and funders can use to help inform the Charlotte Arts and Culture Project.

The 10-year plan will identify how resources and funding can ensure the sustainability and growth of the entire creative sector in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg region, and identify opportunities for increased collaboration between individuals, organizations and other partners. . Developing the plan involves listening to communities, collecting and analyzing data, and building consensus on a shared vision for the future of local arts and culture.

To form this vision and concrete steps to achieve it, the city is continuing its public engagement efforts with new events, a survey and other feedback tools – ensuring that people from all walks of life, generations, neighborhoods and capabilities can contribute to the plan.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg residents and those involved in local arts and culture are all invited to complete a survey. This will help the city’s cultural planning team understand attitudes towards cultural activities and how people enjoy and participate in culture. The survey is available in English and Spanish. Additional languages ​​are available upon request.

The general public and representatives of specific creative sectors will find events relevant to their experiences and roles in the arts and culture economy. The full list of community events is available on the city’s cultural planning webpage.

  • Friends, family, neighbors and other groups can download a discussion guide today and lead their own conversation about the future of arts and culture. The guide is available in English and Spanish.

    After their conversation, participants should scan their responses or notes, or take a photo of themselves and email it to the Culture Planning Team [email protected] The Cultural Planning Team will also accept responses in languages ​​other than English and Spanish.

    Cultural planning efforts are supported by the Infusion Fund, a partnership of the city, the Foundation For The Carolinas and generous private donors, to support arts and culture in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area for three years.
