This webinar will provide an overview of all of the arts and creative culture actions in the Sustainable Jersey program, and will focus on the newest action, Municipal Commitments to Arts and Creative Culture. This action rewards municipalities for building a more welcoming environment for artistic and cultural activity through land use ordinances and other regulations, contractual relationships with cultural organizations, municipal ownership of spaces reserved for cultural and creative activities, tax abatements that help creative people to live or work in the community, and art-specific strategies in the municipality’s Master Plan.
Speakers will talk about how they have utilized their creative assets to make their communities more vibrant, both economically and artistically.
