Anyone who lives, works, or invests in the City of Akron is encouraged to be involved in shaping the Cultural Plan. Here’s how:

1) Review and give your feedback

We curated the public priorities we heard from you, and would love your feedback. You can find the draft public priorities at these links below:

2) Get creative.

Think about what makes Akron interesting, unique, a great place to visit or a great place to call home… then send us those thoughts via photos, rendering, sketches, essays, short stories, ideas, tall tales and one-liners. Just use the “Submit Image or Idea” button below.


Photograph Akron, and share your images on Instagram using the hashtag #AkronCulturalPlan. Use the description section to tell us how your image represents the unique aspects of Akron – how are we different from our neighbors, and what do we share with them? What reflects our history? What illustrates our future?
