The California Arts Council is in the process of creating a new Strategic Plan.  To do so, they need your input!

   -How can the Arts Council best serve California through the arts?
   -How can the Arts Council provide leadership?
   -How can the Arts Council use its existing resources most effectively?
   -How can the Arts Council expand resources for the arts in California?

The Arts Council is conducting a “listening tour,” a series of meetings to ask for input from the arts field and other interested Californians.  (An online survey is also being planned. More on this, and a link to the survey, will be available on the CAC’s website.)

Anyone interested is invited to join in on one or more of the listening tour events listed below.  No RSVP is necessary.
