A Cultural Plan for Macon
Recognizing the potential of arts and culture to drive community connection and economic growth, a community-wide Cultural Planning Process has been launched in Macon-Bibb County with the aim of increasing arts access and engagement across the area. The plan is funded by $100,000 from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation provided to the Community Foundation of Central Georgia on behalf of a community partnership including the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce, the Bibb County School District, Macon Arts Alliance, Macon-Bibb County, Mercer University, the Museum of Arts and Sciences, and Visit Macon.

A steering committee of more than 50 arts, cultural, and community organizations has been formed to develop an arts and culture strategic plan that will build on the work of existing city master plans, address regional challenges and opportunities, and guide future investments in the arts and culture sector. The international cultural planning firm Lord Cultural Resources has been engaged to facilitate the planning process. The world’s largest cultural professional practice, Lord has helped create iconic cultural destinations in more than 460 cities.

With a broad spectrum of organizations and leaders involved, this is the most dynamic cultural planning process in the history of our city!
