DC's new "Cultural Plan"

DC has published a new "Cultural Plan" and is accepting comments on the plan until this coming Wednesday February 28th.  The city needs to hear our voices!!

Given the outflow of artistic talent from DC over the past decade, we, the undersigned, demand a DC Cultural Plan that values the presence and contributions of professional artists in our city. The current draft of the Cultural Plan does not.

To that end, we need a revised plan that:
  • Makes the retention of visual artists among the city's primary goals.
  • Is led by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, the city agency with arts expertise and the closest ties to the arts community.
  • Is guided by a task force comprised of local artists, designers, and creative professionals.
  • Allocates dollars to the goals and investment recommendations.
