Louisville, KY (March 3, 2016) – Facilitators of the newly announced Greater Louisville Master Plan for the Arts recently held free workshops around the Greater Louisville area so that members of the public could share their thoughts, hopes and desires for the future of arts and culture in our community.
The ten workshops, held across the region as part of Phase One of the planning process, aimed to ensure that the plan represents the diverse perspectives in our community. More than 250 people attended workshops at the Southwest Regional Library, the Ogle Center in New Albany, Louisville Central Community Center in West Louisville and the Clifton Center, and 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.
Attendees were asked what is distinctive about Greater Louisville and what arts and culture means to them; what they would like Greater Louisville to look like in 2030; and how the arts can get us there. Facilitators will be analyzing the public input in the coming weeks.
Additional opportunities for the public to participate and share their thoughts will be available throughout the process. Up next, an online survey is coming soon. All Greater Louisville residents are encouraged to take the survey and share their thoughts. Details will be announced in mid-March.
