CHARLOTTE, N.C. (August 25, 2023) – The City of Charlotte and a community steering group are seeking public feedback on draft strategies for the Charlotte Arts and Culture Plan. The comprehensive plan will be implemented to sustain and grow the creative sector in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.

A virtual public feedback session will be held on Aug. 30 to present the draft strategies and hear feedback from residents that will help shape the final draft of the Charlotte Arts and Culture Plan. (REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS CLOSED).

A public meeting in Spanish will be held as well (date/time to be confirmed).

This is an opportunity for the community to help shape the future of arts and culture by providing critical feedback on draft strategies developed by community taskforces; that feedback will be used by the steering group to refine the strategies for the final plan. Participants also will be asked to envision how they can participate in creating the future of the sector by helping to implement the plan in ways that are important to them.

During the session, residents will hear from City of Charlotte leaders and the consultant team from Lord Cultural Resources. The feedback session will include a:

  • Welcome from the City of Charlotte arts and culture officer. 
  • Update on the process to date. 
  • Overview of draft priorities and strategies of the Charlotte Arts and Culture Plan.
  • Feedback discussion where you can weigh in on the draft strategies.

Residents can also share feedback by taking the Arts and Culture Plan survey, which will close Sept. 6, at 11:59 p.m.

The Charlotte Arts and Culture Plan process involves listening to the community, gathering and analyzing data, and building consensus on a shared, community vision for the future of local arts and culture. This vision will be used to create policies, funding strategies, and an actionable plan that will cultivate and support a thriving, sustainable arts and culture community that benefits everyone.
