Nonprofit Introduces Cultural Plan for Charlottesville, Albemarle
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -
Members of a nonprofit are unveiling the first cultural plan for Charlottesville and Albemarle, and they're looking for community support.
The Piedmont Council for the Arts held a gala at the Paramount Theater Monday night to introduce the plan. Members say they hope to inspire others to join the discussion on how to grow the arts, one of the area’s biggest industries.
"This is the area's first ever cultural plan, so it's a really important time for us to be able to really share resources, talk about what we feel the community needs and what the community would like to see in the arts community,” said Sarah Lawson, executive director of the PCA.
