Cultural Planning Process
Art Business Culture
Public Art Program staff serves the recently established Art Business Culture Leadership Team who has been tasked with developing a new cultural planning process since mid-2008. The leadership team was established as a result of the publication of the "Economic Importance of the Arts and Cultural Industries in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County" commission by the City of Albuquerque, Bernalillo County and the College of Fine Arts at the University of New Mexico, with a grant from the McCune Charitable Foundation.
In the fall of 2008, the ABC Leadership Team invited over 70 members of the community to a two-day Search Conference to find answers to the question, “How do we stimulate a vibrant arts and cultural sector that enhances economic development in the region?”
