Learn More About the Dallas Cultural Plan Phase One Insights April 20

Join us at Meadows Conference Center or online for our next Dallas Cultural Plan Webinar! We will share findings from Phase One of the Dallas Cultural Planning process, including key findings from 6 months of community engagement and additional research from comparable cities.

This webinar is part of the Dallas Cultural Plan 2018. Led by the Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, the Plan will articulate a unifying vision of arts and culture, ways to implement it, and a policy framework for an updated cultural policy. Once completed, it will present a practical guidebook for the City and its partners to realize this vision.  CLICK HERE TO RSVP

IN THE NEWS: Every year, during Arts Month, Mayor Rawlings hosts a discussion about important arts issues. This year, he chose to give a progress report on the new cultural plan. And he says he’s pleased with the community’s involvement in the process. READ MORE
Insights 1 “We felt it was important to make sure it was very inclusive,” the Mayor says. “We went to the small arts organizations, as well as the large ones, and really got into the neighborhoods where people feel that art is important to them.”
Insights 2 “One big ‘aha moment’ coming out of this plan is that Dallas needs to not focus on building buildings, but building an arts community,” says the OCA’s director Jennifer Scripps. She – along with several consultants – have been spearheading the project.
Individual artists as well as arts organizations have a powerful place in shaping the city of Dallas. To that end, the Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) has embarked on a “micro-residency” as a part of its cultural planning process. Join us Monday, April 23rd, 6:30-8pm, to hear from participants about their experiences and recommendations for continuing to integrate the arts into City practices.

Help us shape the future of arts and culture in Dallas!

The City of Dallas, through its Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA), is embarking on a year-long process to create the Dallas Cultural Plan—the first since 2002—which will analyze the city’s cultural priorities, determine how Dallas residents experience the arts and culture in their daily lives, and strategically guide how the City supports these activities throughout Dallas.

Dallas already has an amazing arts scene and community – it has grown tremendously with something to do, see, and experience artistically every day. Now, let’s keep arts and culture growing across the city.

Join us at any one of our four kickoff events being held across the city. During these public conversations, in a variety of activities, you will learn about the Dallas Cultural Plan process and share your thoughts, hopes and dreams for Dallas’ cultural future. Don’t miss your chance to participate in this exciting opportunity to shape the future of arts and culture in Dallas!

We hope you’ll join us for this exciting event. Parking at all events will be available and free. If you cannot attend a kickoff meeting, additional community meetings will be held

Go to DALLAS CULTURAL PLAN to find out about the kickoff events and RSVP.
