Cultural Districts Program Development

Jessica Cusick and Maria Rosario Jackson

This report, and the associated recommendations for a state cultural districts program, are based on findings from research conducted by the consulting team, along with the information gathered through a comprehensive public input process that the team conducted in coordination with the CAC staff.

The consulting team engaged in a research process over several months which consisted of literature review, document review and interviews. The team compiled information on cultural districts nationally, including program materials and evaluations from several state programs, and conducted interviews with 25 selected local and national experts and thought leaders in a number of fields. Respondents include arts administrators, artists, community developers, and government officials, among others.
