SAC Cultural Planning Readiness Survey

Cultural Planning Readiness Survey for Somerville

Thank you for sharing your perspective on Somerville's arts and culture landscape. TDC is a Boston-based nonprofit consulting firm. We are working with the Somerville Arts Council (SAC) to assess the community's goals and capacity to engage in a cultural planning process. As a leader in Somerville's arts community, your participation is critical to a successful cultural planning process. 

The survey will ask that you identify yourself so that we and SAC know who has shown interest in cultural planning. Please know that your individual responses will not be made public. We may reach out to you with follow-up questions to deepen our understanding of the community's needs, preferences, and capacity. 

Deadline for completion is Sunday, July 18. The survey should take only 10 minutes. 

“A cultural plan is a community decision-making process that seeks ways to better support and utilize creative work. Cultural plans explore residents’ preferences, the adequacy of public and private structures that support creativity and innovation, and identify specific action steps that can make the community’s creative portfolio stronger, more accessible, more sustainable, and more diverse.”
