Marin County’s Art and Culture Master Planning Process is Underway

The Department of Cultural Services, in partnership with the Marin Cultural Association, the Marin Coalition for the Arts, and arts leaders from all over the County, is developing an arts and culture master plan for Marin.

The richness of Marin County’s creative sector is among the proudest elements of our communal identity. Arts, Culture, Action! will document, capitalize, support and enhance the county’s creative sector to maximize its benefits to all members of our community.

Join the conversation!

From world-renowned musicians, to prolific fine artists and arts and crafts traditions, to cutting-edge film, performance and youth arts programs, Marin County has an incredible cultural history. Yet currently, our county’s vast cultural resources are diffuse and disconnected, functioning without a cohesive vision and the necessary supports to truly thrive.

We want to know what you value most about arts and culture in Marin, what you hope to see them become, and your ideas on how we can get there, together.

Take the Community Survey!

Artists, we want to know more about you and your contributions to the arts ecosystem of Marin, and we have a link just for you.
