The City of Somerville invites residents to a second forum on the draft recommendations from its Somerville Cultural Capacity Plan work, which was launched in March 2023. (https://somervilleartscouncil.org/culturalcapacity). The City has hosted approximately 30 Community Conversations that were open to the public and organized by interest groups (i.e. visual artists, event organizers) and identity groups (i.e. BIPOC participants, recent immigrants). These conversations will be facilitated by local Cultural Ambassadors Ajda Snyder, Andrea Read, Emily Beattie, Callie Chapman, Cidjud Felix, Catherine Nakato, Janeann Dill, Jason Polins, Joe Wight, Joshua Sarinana, Julia Csekö, May Chu, Lynn Gervens and Murshid Buwembo, all who applied through an initial survey. These conversations addressed the question: How might we help arts and culture thrive in Somerville? To view the full list of Community Conversations and topics, visit the Somerville Cultural Capacity Plan page on the Somerville Arts Council website, or click here: https://somervilleartscouncil.org/culturalcapacity/conversations).

Residents are invited to participate in city-wide forum #2 on November 13th, which will focus on the recommendations from those conversations. The meeting will provide an overview of the process to date, a panel discussion by the Ambassadors, and break out sessions with all attendees to review a draft of the recommendations and actions.
