We often provide input into cultural planning and community development projects, as well as review the many cultural planning documents that various communities produce. The following documents – drafted by consultants, marketing professionals, and government agencies from around the country – provide some good examples of this work. We hope these will help with your own cultural planning, community development or other research and planning projects.
