About The Arts & Culture Plan

The Asbury Park Arts Council and the City of Asbury Park, with funding provided by Monmouth Arts and the Monmouth County Covid-19 Community Recovery Grant Program, have embarked on an effort to create a comprehensive Arts & Culture Plan for Asbury Park.

The process includes:

  • An INVENTORY of existing cultural activity to ASSESS the health of the city’s cultural ecosystem
  • Identification of a common VISION & GOALS to guide the planning effort
  • Evaluation of various OPTIONS & STRATEGIES to support arts & culture; and
  • An ARTS & CULTURE PLAN that identifies and guides implementation

Each phase is supported by ENGAGEMENT & INPUT from the public to shape the outcomes of the plan and its priorities.
