Collier County residents are invited to participate in the Collier County Cultural Community Survey as part of the county’s Arts and Culture Strategic Plan process. The five-minute survey is available through Oct. 25, 2019, in both English and Spanish languages.
In May 2019, Collier County contracted The Cultural Planning Group to direct the development of an Arts and Culture Strategic Plan for the County. The firm has performed similar cultural planning services in Broward County, Boston, Boulder, Houston, and many other communities.
Funding for the plan comes from $50,000 the commission allocated from Collier County Tourist Development Council funds, with the remainder coming from matching grants provided by the Community Foundation of Collier County and ArtisꟷNaples.
The planning efforts will include the development of a project work plan and evaluation of existing community conditions and arts and cultural assets, followed by development of a strategic framework, identification of future public and private funding sources, and finalization of a long-term strategic plan.
Development of the Arts and Culture Strategic Plan has included gathering input from community arts and culture organizations, tourism industry stakeholders and residents through a series of meetings throughout Collier County.
