RI arts council seeks comment on strategic plan

The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts yesterday released for public comment a draft version of its latest strategic plan. Read it and comment here. The council said that the plan “outlines the role the state arts council will play in helping to strengthen and support the arts in Rhode Island, estimated by economists to contribute over $750 million annually to the state's economy.”

"Artists and arts organizations are suffering in this economic climate," arts council executive director Randy Rosenbaum said in a prepared statement. "Now, more than ever, we need to recognize how important the arts are to our economy, to the education of our young, and to our quality of life." Planning helps to "maximize the state's return on its investment in the arts."
