The Charlotte Arts and Culture Plan

The City of Charlotte is developing a comprehensive plan that will sustain and grow arts and culture in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area.

The Charlotte Arts and Culture Plan process involves listening to communities, 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.

Planning is underway and will finish in the spring of 2023. Help us shape the future of arts and culture by telling us what is important to you, how you participate in the creative sector, and where we need to focus our efforts. Let your voice be heard!

Events

The cultural planning team, including city staff and representatives from consultants Lord Cultural Resources and Civility Localized, will host or attend various events throughout the community to discuss the future of arts and culture. Additional events will be added to the list below as details are finalized.
