History of the Arts & Culture Commission

The Arts and Culture Commission was created in 2007 as a result of recommendations made by ArtsPlan06, a community arts and cultural planning process, which assessed the strengths and weaknesses of current arts and cultural realities along with citizens' aspirations for the future. The ArtsPlan06 process was initiated by the Northfield Downtown Development Corporation and funded by the City of Northfield.

In September 2012, the Arts and Culture released its Report to the City Council, which serves to update council as to the group's progress, challenges and opportunities, as well as provide recommendations for Council consideration.
To see the progress the Arts and Culture Commission has made, previous reports are also available.
