Summer Public Outreach
During the first week of June 2017, the City will be conducting a series of public outreach events to gather input for how we continue to implement and enjoy arts and culture in Surprise. The focus of these events will be inviting engaged members and professionals of the arts community to participate in a roundtable discussion that will help to shape that plan.
These meetings are open to the public and community input is essential to creating a plan that represents our city’s uniqueness and artistic vitality. That is why we want your help identifying our arts and cultural strengths and weaknesses, strategies to support and grow our strengths and solutions to overcome our weaknesses.
Whether you’re an artist, performer, event host/organizer, or concerned member of the Surprise’s community, we invite you to attend one of the meetings to offer your insight at one or more of roundtable discussions below.
Future Fall 2017 Public Outreach
As part of the public outreach for the Arts & Culture Master Plan, the City will be continuing to gather input that will shape the Arts and Culture. The primary audience during the fall engagements will be the residents and visitors of Surprise to assure that a complete and diverse voice is heard.
Staff, in partnership with the Arts and Cultural Advisory Commission, will host events at various locations throughout the City as well as be present as other community events. The shaping of this Arts and Culture Master Plan is balanced between the professionals of the industry and the residents and visitors when sculpting the standard and strategic direction for Surprise.
The dates and times of the fall public outreach meetings have yet to be determined. Please check back or register for updates.
