The City of Houston is seeking input from residents on its Art & Cultural Plan, a 2-year initiative begun in early 2014, through a series of “Community Conversations.” There are three of these Conversations left:

Tuesday, February 17th, 6:30–8pm
Charlton Community Center
8200 Park Place Boulevard
Houston 77017

Wednesday, February 18th, 6:30–8pm
White Oak Conference Center
7603 Antoine Drive
Houston 77088

Thursday, February 19th, 6:30–8pm
Sharpstown Community Center
6600 Harbor Town Drive
Houston 77036

The last cultural plan was made more than 20 years ago and Mayor Annise Parker has directed that the plan be finished before she leaves office at the end of 2015. When she named Philamena Baird and Rick Lowe to serve as co-chairs of the Arts & Cultural Plan Advisory Committee (for the full member list, go here), she stated, “It’s time for a new plan that will position Houston as a leader and destination for arts and culture.”

The City’s website says, “We need your input to help move our city forward. As part of the Arts & Cultural Plan process, the City will look to the community for opinions, experience and feedback.” Okay, Glasstire readers: we know you have plenty of opinions, experience and feedback. So go join the conversation!
