The City of Lakeport requested input on arts and culture through a survey published on Nov. 2. A total of 59 individuals shared their comments and interests.
The feedback identified the top reasons that keep individuals and families from attending or participating in creative activities and cultural events, such as not knowing about the event or not attending due to conflicts with schedules and locations.
Additionally, the survey yielded that social media, online publications, and friends through word of mouth are the top platforms where individuals become informed about activities and events.
The survey participants voted that an urban design in arts and cultural activities is a great idea, with a focus on addressing health and wellness, environmental and social service issues.
The survey results will be considered as the City develops an arts and culture component in its next economic development strategic plan. The plan’s objectives are to uplift and celebrate local artists, stimulate a creative economy, make the Lakeport area an arts destination, support the work of arts groups and organizations, and engage the community.
