City of Dubuque Arts and Culture Plan
The City of Dubuque, Iowa strongly values its arts and cultural resources. Working within the framework provided by the Sustainable Dubuque plan, arts and culture are seen as catalysts for creativity and quality of life and a spark for the economic development of this regional center on the Mississippi River.
Lord Cultural Resources has worked with the City to develop an Arts and Culture Plan that refines the tools the City needs to fully leverage the power of culture in Dubuque. Working with the Economic Development Department of the City, Lord developed policies around public art, analyzed the funding mechanisms for arts and culture in the city, and is developed a framework for the improved functioning of the Arts and Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission.
