Cambridge’s New Arts & Culture Master Plan

May 11, 2009 at 1:12 pm Leave a comment

Soon the City of Cambridge will be implementing a new $70,000 arts and culture master plan. There is a push for both the Drayton Theatre and the Venice Biennale, as they will attract thousands of people to Cambridge, creating an economic stimulus.

Other recommendations call on the city to:

• create a new cultural managers position, with the resources to assist and mentor various groups within the arts and cultural community;

• expand the city’s arts and culture advisory committee to involve the business sector;

• undertake a review of operations at Cambridge Centre for the Arts;

• create stabilized funding for the arts;

• turn Galt core into an arts Mecca;

• develop and nurture new special events across the city;

• develop a marketing strategy.

This is all great news, and will hopefully change people’s general perception of the City towards one that is new and sophisticated with a new found passion for the arts.
