Shared Vision

In August, more than 60 stakeholders joined the Delaware Arts Alliance in Milford to celebrate the launch of community engagement efforts to aid the development of a Creative Economy and Cultural Tourism Recovery and Growth Plan.

The initiative plans to engage hundreds of Delawareans from diverse backgrounds to produce a shared vision, advocacy tools, and actionable policy agenda for advancing Delawareโ€™s creative economy across state, county and local governments. The effort is the first of its kind in the nation.

Artists, creatives, cultural organizations, businesses, and community members are encouraged to participate in their brief survey at

โ€œThe input that we receive from Delawareans over the coming months will provide the data needed to form the actionable recommendations that we will then bring to our policymakers and decisionmakers when this plan is released by Summer of 2024,โ€ said Neil Kirschling, Executive Director of the Delaware Arts Alliance.

In addition, the Creative Economy and Cultural Tourism Recovery and Growth Plan will include an asset map of existing arts and culture offerings, an economic impact analysis, and a regulatory review of current Delaware policies and practices. For more, visit
