Richmond Arts Strategy


What is your vision for a vibrant arts scene in Richmond?
What role should the City of Richmond play to achieve this vision?

The City of Richmond is developing a new Arts Strategy to enrich Richmond's quality of life through broad accessibility and engagement with the arts. The Strategy will serve as a guide for decision-making to empower ideas, people and resources around a shared vision and set of goals, strategies and tactics.

Tell us how you think we can best move the arts forward in our communities. You are invited to take part in a range of engagement activities, including an online survey (coming soon), community dialogue sessions, panel discussions and more. Watch this space for updates.
