Cultural Affairs - Minneapolis

A regular look at how different state and city governments promote the arts.

From the Minneapolis Cultural Affairs web site -
The Mission of Cultural Affairs is to encourage arts participation, arts support and arts making in the City of Minneapolis. The City of Minneapolis established Cultural Affairs in November 1999. In 2002, the Mayor and City Council moved Cultural Affairs to the Planning Division of CPED as a means to integrate arts programming into the City's overall goals and comprehensive plan.

Cultural Affairs staff work closely with the Minneapolis Arts Commission and share their goal of developing a strong and vital arts community throughout Minneapolis. This year, the Arts Commission and Cultural Affairs are launching a comprehensive cultural planning process that will result in the City of Minneapolis Plan for Arts and Culture a ten-year strategic plan that defines the role of the City of Minneapolis in supporting the arts and culture.
