In order to gain a broad understanding of El Dorado County – its cultural and natural resources, its artists and arts audiences, its geography, history, and agriculture, and its community assets – and thereby develop greater connectivity in this largely rural region through arts and culture, Arts and Culture El Dorado launched a cultural master planning process in July 2016.

Cultural planning is an effective tool for focusing and channeling the power of the arts to build a more livable community, which in turn has the power to attract cultural tourism and new businesses within the creative sector.
