Between February and April in 2014, Nevada Arts Council (NAC) staff and board traveled about 2,600 miles to facilitate thirteen Arts Town Meetings and engage in a statewide conversation about the arts with nearly 500 Nevadans. Discussions focused on community-specific matters as well as issues that resonated in cities and towns, urban and rural, across the state. Information gathered at these meetings, along with comments from more than 220 online surveys, is being analyzed and will guide the NAC strategic plan, Values and Vision, 2016-2019.
Nevada boasts a passionate and active arts coalition of individuals, organizations, and businesses. NAC is proud to partner and collaborate with so many who continue to improve the state’s quality of life, increase access to the arts, and strengthen our educational system for future generations.
