Wisconsin Arts Board Strategic Plan for 2015 - 2017


Every three years, the Wisconsin Arts Board engages people around the state in strategically planning for the agency's future activities and programs.

As we began that process for Fiscal Years 2015 - 2017, the board once again committed to engaging those whom our mission is designed to serve.

In order to do so, members of the staff and board traveled the state in January - April, of 2014 in a series of town meetings designed to encourage broad input on the upcoming strategic plan, to learn more about what constituents know, and share more about what we know related to the arts in Wisconsin.

Here's where we went:

  • ​Wausau – Jan 27
  • Washburn – Jan 27
  • Superior – Jan 28
  • Shell Lake – Jan 28
  • Eau Claire – Jan 28
  • Rochester – Feb 10
  • Kenosha – Feb 10
  • Madison – Feb 11
  • Milwaukee (Gallery @ Large) – Feb 27
  • Milwaukee (The Martin Luther King Center) – April 3
  • Milwaukee (Art Bar) – April 3
  • Oneida – April 7
  • Green Bay – April 7

We also invited those who could not attend any of the "in person" meetings listed above to consider and comment on the draft plan, to provide suggestions regarding Arts Board programs and services, and to tell us about the opportunities that they foresaw related to their art-work, arts organization, or community. We encouraged them to do so by emailing the Wisconsin Arts Board.​​
