Vision for cultural arts center focus of upcoming community engagement

Published on May 22, 2023


The City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department invites all neighbors to attend a community workshop this month to help shape the vision of a cultural arts center in east Gainesville.

When: Wed., May 31, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Where: The city’s Historic Thomas Center, 302 NE Sixth Ave.

The upcoming workshop is designed to hear from neighbors about their needs, interests and expectations regarding a cultural arts center. The input will provide vital information in a study by AMS Planning & Research Corp., a national arts management consulting firm hired by the city. The AMS study will help determine the feasibility of either creating a new cultural arts center or renovate an existing structure in Gainesville.
