Arts and culture bring us together. They inspire, provide hope, and offer a way to express ideas.
They are a vital part of our Park City and Summit County community.
Over fifteen local nonprofits bring arts and culture into our lives through performances, education, exhibits, and other experiences. Food festivals, art fairs, theater, film, and concerts fill our calendars. Resident musicians, painters, writers, photographers, and chefs make it their life’s work to share their talents. Our schools have strong arts programming. People may come to our town for recreation and nature, but they stay and are fulfilled by our creative offerings and spirit.
Our community has made significant investments in recreation and open space in the past decade that have critically improved our quality of life. We have not made similar investments in our arts and culture services. No current master plan exists for the creative sector, and no formal assessment and planning effort for arts and culture has been done since 1999.
A diverse group of community leaders have come together to lead the development of a new plan. This group has asked the Park City Summit County Arts Council to manage a collaborative, community-wide planning effort to chart a course for the future.
The initiative is called ProjectABC: art, beauty, culture and will build a roadmap for the future of arts and culture in Summit County.
