BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

With the passage of the advisory referendum on the November 5, 2019 ballot for the one-quarter cent sales and use tax, a governance model will be needed for Arts and Culture funds, as well as, Parks and Greenways. The proposed resolution addresses the governance model framework approved by the Board on September 4, 2019.

 

It's believed any model created must not only provide stability to existing and emerging cultural organizations, it must also ensure cultural equity across the county. ASC’s working definition of cultural equity was used to guide the work of the committee that studied the issue of governance. ASC's definition of cultural equity: To truly achieve ASC’s vision of “Culture for All,” all Charlotte-Mecklenburg residents must have equitable opportunity to participate in the cultural life of our region as audiences, volunteers, artists, administrators, board members and donors.
