Listening Tour for New Strategic Plan

Published: 03-20-2013

The California Arts Council is in the process of creating a new Strategic Plan. To do so, we need your input!

   ---How can the Arts Council best serve California through the arts?
   ---How can the Arts Council provide leadership?
   ---How can the Arts Council use its existing resources most effectively?
   ---How can the Arts Council expand resources for the arts in California? 

The Arts Council recently conducted a "listening tour," a series of meetings to ask for input from the arts field and other interested Californians. Couldn't come to one of our live events?  Take our online survey.  We want to hear from you.

Staff contact for Strategic Plan:

The CAC has hired Rodriguez Strategies to assist with the Strategic Planning process. Rodriguez Strategies is helping to execute the Listening Tour and craft the new Strategic Plan with the Council.

You bring your ideas; we'll bring the ears.
