This toolkit is intended to help municipalities incorporate arts and culture into their communities, enhance livability by improving quality of life, and become more attractive places to live, work, and play. It offers a primer on different types of arts and culture and their inherent primary needs and secondary impacts, then proceeds to detail steps that can be taken by communities:
- Preparation. Creating a local definition for arts and culture, setting goals, and articulating a desired result early in the process.
- Participation and Input. Identifying key stakeholders, exploring and establishing partnerships, soliciting and processing feedback from the community, and vetting and refining of goals and strategies as they are formed.
- Assessment. Evaluating current conditions and identifying potential obstacles as they relate to established goals, essentially asking the question, “What do we need that we don’t currently have, and what is stopping us from getting it?”
- Implementation. Formulating policies and regulatory approaches to achieve the vision of the community.
