Macon is a city like no other. We have everything from centuries-old indigenous art and historic architecture to an incredible musical legacy that spans soul and southern rock. Our biggest asset, however, is not our past, but our present and our future – and the arts are needed now more than ever. "We now have an actionable vision that leverages our assets and aspirations for the benefit of all. The plan represents the most dynamic cultural planning process in the history of our city – and offers the arts as a powerful collective tool to capture spirit, solve problems and amplify our investments." – Susan Welsh, Executive Director of the Museum of Arts and Sciences Macon Arts Alliance is charged with leading the implementation of the 2020 Macon Cultural Plan. For the next five years, their focus will be on implementing the priorities, strategies and actions outlined in the document. "We cannot do this alone," said Julie Wilkerson, Executive Director of Macon Arts Alliance. "I encourage everyone to download the plan and find where your goals and actions intersect with those in the plan." As our whole community begins to implement the 2020 Macon Cultural Plan, Macon Arts is eager to see the fruits of your labor. They want to know where you are experiencing, creating and consuming arts and culture in your community. Use the online map available on their website and then take a look at other cultural assets across the city. By leveraging arts and culture across five priorities, Macon can begin to create equity and economic prosperity for all of its residents.These priorities are: Tourism, Education, Creative Industries, Neighborhood Development and Audience Cultivation.
