DC Cultural Plan Open House

Wednesday, February 14, 2018


Please join the DC Office of Planning; Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment; and Commission on the Arts and Humanities on Tuesday February 20, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Old Council Chambers, located at 441 4th Street NW, to connect with the District’s cultural agencies and provide feedback on the Draft DC Cultural Plan.

With this inaugural Cultural Plan the District is joining national cultural leaders in establishing comprehensive and forward-looking cultural policy. The Plan introduces an approach for the District to align programs, build new partnerships and make strategic investments that will make culture more inclusive and accessible in our growing city. It increases opportunities in the District’s cultural economy, which currently employs more than 150,000 people. The Plan also helps lower barriers and increase opportunities for all residents to create and consume culture. This Plan is an approach to strengthen DC culture by celebrating our history, traditions, institutions and communities. To review a copy of the Plan visit dcculturalplan.org to review the Draft Cultural Plan.
