Connecting culture and community

Cuyahoga Arts and Culture’s vision is: All Cuyahoga County residents experience a meaningful cultural life
The findings of our planning process and community listening affirm our 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.

Throughout 2016, CAC set out to learn more about the cultural life of residents of the County – an effort to understand our community’s values and our own – and to learn from our neighbors how to better serve the greater Cleveland area.

In this section, you can learn more about the findings of our dialogue with more than 2,000 residents, see upcoming events in our community, and review the detailed findings of our process.

What we’ve heard and what we’ve learned will shape CAC’s next ten years.
