Asking for Your Input -- Cultural Affairs Division, City of Austin

From article by Dante Dominic on Austin.com:

“Part of what makes Austin so unique is our diversity, our culture,” says Laura Esparza, Cultural Affairs Division Manager. “This survey will help us know how to reach our different communities with the most exciting programs for them. We need to get a clear picture of our changing cultural needs and tastes,” said Esparza, “so we’re getting as many opinions as possible.”

The Cultural Affairs Division is a branch of the City of Austin’s Parks and Recreation Department. It oversees the Carver Museum and Cultural Center, the Dougherty Arts Center, the Elisabet Ney Museum, the O. Henry Museum, the Zilker Hillside Theater, the People’s Renaissance Market, and the Mexican American Cultural Center. In 2008, the division offered more than 2350 arts classes, hosted over 200,000 visitors, and incubated at least 3283 individual artists and community groups through free or low-cost use of their galleries, theaters, and rehearsal spaces.

“In the end, this survey is about you,” Esparza concludes.
