DC Cultural Plan Open House

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 to review the Draft Cultural Plan.

INTERMISSIONDC Community Listening Sessions on the DC CULTURAL PLAN (RSVP Strongly Encouraged):

The DC Office of Planning is seeking community input as it drafts the DC Cultural Plan. When completed, the DC Cultural Plan will lay out a vision and recommendations on how the government and its partners can build upon, strengthen and invest in the people, places, communities and ideas that define culture within the District.

INTERMISSIONDC seeks to bring together residents, artists and community institutions to engage with one another on issues related to cultural development, preservation, production, expression and consumption. Through facilitated small groups and interactive exhibits, participants will share their reflections, suggestions and ideas on topics such as:

- Affirming and maintaining a DC cultural identity,
- Performance and production space needs,
- Cultural programming and innovation, and
- Regulatory reform
