The Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) has announced that a series of regional arts forums will help shape the reassessment of Imagine Maryland, its five-year strategic plan. Each of the six forums, which are hosted by County Arts Councils, will be held at MSAC grantee organizations. Read more and RSVP to attend an arts forum in your region.

“This important process will allow us to gauge the success of the past five years and building on that foundation, identify opportunities to broaden the cultural and economic impact of the arts in years to come,” said MSAC Chair Barbara Bershon, in announcing the update. Updates to the strategic plan will measure advances toward its original goals and prioritize remaining opportunities.
