Louisville, KY (March 15, 2016) – Residents of the Greater Louisville Region are invited to take part in an online survey related to the development of a Master Plan for the Arts. The public is encouraged to share their thoughts, hopes and desires for the future of arts and culture in our community through the completion of a short, anonymous online survey, open now through midnight on April 30. To take the survey, visit http://tiny.cc/louartsplan.
At this early stage of the planning process, input from the public is critical to ensure the creation of a useful master plan that benefits the entire region. The survey covers topics such as your current level of participation in arts-related events, how you would rate current arts and cultural activities in Greater Louisville, and what you’d like to see here in the future. All comments will be considered and used to identify community priorities, which will inform a plan that represents the diverse perspectives in our community.
The survey is just one of several public engagement opportunities that are part of the planning process. Most recently, more than 250 people participated in free workshops at the Southwest Regional Library, the Ogle Center in New Albany, Louisville Central Community Center in West Louisville and the Clifton Center, as well as several sector workshops with artists, leaders of arts organizations, educators, tourism professionals, business sector representatives and funders. In a workshop at Atherton High School, seniors who live in neighborhoods across Greater Louisville offered a range of viewpoints.
The master plan and implementation strategy is expected to be finalized by the end of 2016 and will articulate a common platform of goals and strategies aimed at building alignment, leveraging resources, and positioning the Louisville region’s arts and cultural sector to lead and support the community’s overall vision for thefuture.
