Arts and Culture Public Officials Breakfast 2015


News and Events


Spring Update

As changes are happening all over Cleveland’s arts and culture communities, we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes. Megan has been establishing our next set of strategic objectives as she grows and understands the lay of the land from a new perspective. She’s meeting with leaders all over Cleveland, following development of the changes at Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and keeping up on local issues -- we send our best to Jill Paulsen as she works with the CAC board during this transition. We’ve also spotted a new notebook dedicated to all Megan's ideas that is piquing our curiosity, though we know we have a lot to do before we get to sharing. And these are just a few of our most pressing tasks for defining our future. 

Meg has been working on feeding back to you what we’re hearing as we finalize our strategic plan. The summaries will give an overview. They are a quick read, and we hope you'll take the survey to tell us if we’ve caught everything. We work for you to ensure the conditions exist for your arts and culture to thrive, and to do that, we want to be sure we know what those conditions currently are. 

LeAundra is focused on the Public Officials Recognition Breakfast. Our visit to the Rock Hall to work out some logistics was fantastic. You should see the space. There is still time to nominate a public official who has contributed to arts and culture. Also, if you haven’t registered yet, we encourage artists and arts and culture administrators to look into the partial scholarship or volunteer. You can send LeAundra a quick email on that.

Meanwhile, Valerie is directing design of a report that details some critical lessons from CPAC’s 20-year history. In it, you’ll see what CPAC did alongside the arts and culture sector to secure local public funding, Cleveland's role in the rise of the creative placemaking movement and CPAC's ongoing work as a data-driven partner focused on advancement in, and through, arts and culture. While that’s just a taste of what we’re working on, we can’t go on without recognizing our newest team member, Abby. She has been outstanding in making sure we remain operational, tracking numbers, drafting budgets and monitoring all our fiscal activity. It’s such a critical role in any organization. 

One last note. For any nonprofit, our volunteer Board of Directors, committees and task-forces are our chief assets. Among the many supports they provide (fiscal oversight, strategic direction, executive counsel), CPAC’s Board is in discussions for a new name for our established organization. It’s an exciting time for CPAC. We have your back and we’re looking forward to the work ahead.
