Many of our clients have come to ARTSOPOLIS through a cultural planning process. Cultural planning is a place-based planning process that generates a vision and action plan for strengthening and growing arts and culture assets within a community. The planning process may involve a number of different facets, including social cohesion and equity; community engagement; arts and culture programming; services for the creative community; cultural economic development; cultural facilities development; and funding for arts and culture, including permanent or temporary public art and programming.

ARTSOPOLIS is often called upon to provide services that can help meet some of theses objectives. If you are currently engaged or wish to engage in a cultural planning process the following resources may be helpful to your work.
