On July 29, 1999, the Art Advisory Committee met with the purpose of creating a strategic plan for the future of arts and culture in Wichita. Representatives from nearly all major Wichita/Sedgwick County arts and cultural representatives were present. The joint facilitation was designed as an open forum where all attendants could openly converse about this subject. Their mission statement is:
“To assist and advise the Arts Council in the leadership and coordination of community cultural resources for the purpose of advancing the arts and culture in Wichita/Sedgwick County.”
This group is asked to meet when input form all the organizations is needed on major issues concerning arts and culture in Wichita.
