The vision of our community’s 2010-2020 Cultural Plan is to develop, enliven, enhance and promote arts, culture and creative industries in the Pikes Peak region to the benefit of our residents, our visitors, our cultural sector, and our business sector.
Published in 2010, this 10-year plan identifies goals, strategies and tactics for supporting the growth and diversity of cultural activities and offerings in the Pikes Peak region, and, in turn, pointing to methods in which the arts can strengthen all sectors of the community.
The arts are an ecosystem, and in order for that ecosystem to flourish, we require a unified vision for our sector among its many players, including individual artists, the nonprofit sector, creative industries and a wide range of cultural consumers and arts participants. This diversity will serve as a source of strength and inspiration for creative individuals and arts organizations and will not only advance the creative sector but will enhance the economic vitality of the entire region, developing a reputation for our region as a cultural destination.
The Cultural Office, in partnership with the Bee Vradenburg Foundation, will be leading the upcoming effort to produce a new 2020-2030 Cultural Plan. Please check back for details.
