In 2012, City Council stated a goal for Raleigh to be

the ‘The Southern Capital for Arts and Culture,’ by

integrating visual and performing arts throughout

the city. While the city will continue to support and

promote traditional venues such as museums, galleries

and performance centers, it will also strive to make art

more accessible to residents through non-traditional

venues such as parks, squares, greenways and natural

areas to enhance residents’ quality of life.

Goal 1:The City of Raleigh will be a national

leader in supporting the arts.

Goal 2: The City of Raleigh will make

art more accessible to residents through

traditional and non-traditional venues and

partnerships.

Goal 3: The City of Raleigh will nurture the

growth of Raleigh’s creative community to

promote entrepreneurship and innovation.
