Arts and Culture Community Survey

In 2018, the Town of Bennett founded the Bennett Arts Council in order to provide an avenue for arts and cultural development in both Bennett and the surrounding unincorporated areas. The Council consists of Town staff as well as numerous community partners including local artists and artisans, special districts, and non-profits. The established mission statement for the Bennett Arts Council is to promote, connect, and empower arts and culture for all ages throughout the Town and I-70 Corridor. The Council values sustainability, collaboration, innovation, and the transformative power of the arts.

In order to fulfill the above mission statement, the Bennett Arts Council was tasked with creating an arts and cultural master plan for Bennett. This master plan will establish long-term goals for the development of arts and culture in the area.

Hoping to create a document that is fully representative of the community's needs and desires for arts and culture, the Bennett Arts Council is asking for your input and feedback.

Please consider taking this five minute survey to add your voice and provide the Bennett Arts Council with the information necessary to best serve your needs.

If you have any questions about the survey please contact Taeler Houlberg at thoulberg@bennett.co.us.
