The community, including residents, artists, educators, and culture-oriented organizations and businesses throughout the Morongo Basin will be asked to participate in developing a Strategic Plan for Culture and the Arts.
The County of San Bernardino will lead the effort along with The Cultural Planning Group, a Southern California consulting firm specializing in the field of arts and culture with experience working with communities across the country to create cultural plans.
“The Morongo Basin is known for its artistic and creative way of life which continues to attract residents, businesses and tourists to this region,” said San Bernardino County Third District Supervisor James Ramos. “We hope the community will help us build this roadmap to continue to promote and celebrate the Morongo Basin as an artistic hub.”
The plan will assist Morongo Basin communities to articulate their vision for culture and the arts. This will lead to plans for activities that can fulfill that vision, such as art shows, arts education, musical performances, poetry readings, writing groups, festivals and seminars.
The Cultural Planning Group will work with a leadership group of community leaders, including artists and others, to guide the planning process grounded in the unique creative identity of the Morongo Basin, and to create a plan based on the priorities of the communities of Joshua Tree, Morongo Valley, Pioneertown, Landers, Wonder Valley, Yucca Valley, and Twentynine Palms. The local communities will implement the plan with guidance from the leadership committee.
The Strategic Plan for Culture and the Arts is expected to be complete in mid-2018. The first public meetings will begin before the end of the year. The San Bernardino County Land Use Services Planning Division will also be posting information on their website and social media links.
