Sacramento’s Arts, Culture & Creative Economy Plan
Perhaps overshadowed by California’s coastal cities, this capital city is reclaiming its story and celebrating its unique character. It is on the “creative edge” of its next iteration. This citywide plan leverages the community’s creativity in multiple ways for enhanced cultural development, greater equity, economic growth, and authentic placemaking/placekeeping. One priority is arts education and the plan has already led to the formation of an ambitious countywide initiative to assure arts education for every student supported by the mayor and educational leaders. The City has taken a deep internal look and established new policies and funding programs to support racial and cultural equity. The plan has generated significant new dollars for the arts and public/private partnerships, aligned with the goals of the plan.
