While on Sacramento Metro Chamber's Study Missions to Atlanta, Georgia (2002), Denver, Colorado (2001), Austin, Texas (2000), and Seattle, Washington (1999), the arts and culture teams learned how the foundation was laid for a renaissance of the arts and culture in these respective regions and how the arts played significant role in the revitalization of downtown areas. The Sacramento region is prime for a similar strategy of success with a Regional Arts Strategic Plan. The Chamber visited Portland, Oregon in October 2003 and plan to visit Salt Lake City, Utah in October 6 - 8, 2004.
The Sacramento Metro Chamber announced its Regional Arts Strategic Plan in October 2003.
Plan initiatives include establishing a marketing council for arts groups; shared business services, ongoing training for administrators, staffs, volunteers and boards, and a role for the Metro Chamber of Commerce to study and make recommendations on proposed cultural facilities. The plan also explores new sources of funding, both private and public.
