Community Draft Cultural Plan Review Sessions
We are almost there! For the last two years, residents around the City have participated in focus groups, community meetings, on-line surveys and one-on-one interviews to share their ideas about how Madison supports and utilizes arts, culture, and creative work.
At the end of 2011, consultant Mary Berryman Agard of Madison presented the Cultural Plan Steering Committee with her recommendations for the first citywide Cultural Plan.
As her draft winds through various city committees for comment, members of the Cultural Plan Steering Committee would like to meet with Madison residents to share highlights of the plan and hear reaction before they advance final recommendations to the Madison Common Council.
In the coming weeks, the Cultural Plan Steering Committee will embark on a series of community meetings throughout Madison. The public is invited and encouraged to help inform the steering committee members of priorities, questions, concerns, or missed opportunities.
A PDF copy of the draft plan and executive summary are available on the Cultural Plan website.
