Cuyahoga Arts & Culture is embarking on a year of celebration, reflection, and discovery. This year marks a decade of our agency’s work to strengthen organizations and inspire residents across Cuyahoga County through our investments in arts and culture.
Starting in 2015, when Cuyahoga County residents overwhelmingly supported the renewal of the 10-year tax to support arts and culture in our community, we embarked on a project to better understand how we could best support the creative life of Cuyahoga County residents now, and for years to come.
Today, we’re pleased to share Cuyahoga Voices & Vision, a community listening project resulting from thousands of conversations with county residents, the arts and cultural community, and you.
During this 18-month process, we heard clearly that we need to continue to support our community’s artists and cultural organizations, while exploring ways to recognize and equitably support Cuyahoga County’s varied cultural ecology. Our planning and listening led us to craft a vision that will guide our next ten years:
All Cuyahoga County residents experience a meaningful cultural life.
Please visit future.cacgrants.org, our digital home for the project’s methodology, stories from participants, and full findings.
We hope you’ll join us as we continue to work to foster deeper connections between residents and the arts and culture that make our community a vibrant place to live, work, and visit.
