Arts United Survey Seeks to Advance Fort Wayne's Cultural Vibrancy

Arts United, Fort Wayne's umbrella arts organization, is getting ready ask residents a big question: "What do you love about this community?"

Arts United is hoping to set an agenda for advancing arts and culture in Northeast Indiana, beginning this Monday, with a short "Quality of Life Survey."

The results will be presented in two public town hall meetings this July, and information from those discussions will be added to the final report.

Arts United's Dan Ross is looking for the connective tissues from which the organization can develop its own long range plan.

"We would like to see all of the people in our region have the opportunity to help shape the direction that the arts and cultural community is going to be going over these next several years," Ross said. "And we want to see that sector influence, and align with the broader community goals."

The final report will be presented at a public town hall meeting this fall.

Arts United's "Quality of Life Survey" begins this Monday, June 15th and ends July 4th. During that time, interested residents can take the survey here.
