Arcata Strategic Arts Plan

The City of Arcata is in the process of creating the Arcata Strategic Arts Plan (ASAP).


The Community Development Department has been developing this plan since fall 2019 with the goal of supporting arts in Arcata equitably and sustainably. The ASAP will expand and formalize the City’s support for the arts, and guide the City’s engagement with local community partners in the arts.
