Cultural Arts Master Plan
|The mission of the City of Inglewood's Cultural Arts Master Plan is to improve the quality of life in Inglewood through developing residents' awareness, understanding, appreciation and participation in the arts and to infuse arts into all facets of Inglewood society, including: education, religion, business, social services, public agencies sports and entertainment. Use of this Plan is the principal tool by which this mission is achieved.
The Cultural Arts Master Plan represents a summary of research, planning, findings and recommendations made by a community volunteer Task Force, with input from all segments of the community. Twenty-six (26) focus groups were conducted with over 250 residents, representing all ages, ethnicities and a variety of community interests and backgrounds. The themes that emerged from the focus groups and demographic data provided the principal material for the Task Force to consider in their recommendations.
The following major themes were identified through the focus groups:
- City government to provide leadership
- Arts and education
- Create venues for the arts
- Support professional artists
- Acquire funding and resources
- Inglewood's image to include arts and cultur
A non-profit community agency, Inglewood Cultural Arts, Inc., was formed as a result of the Plan. This organization can be reached at (310) 712-7049.
