The ​Virginia Beach Arts Plan 2030 is the culmination of a year-long process of listening to our community, assessing our cultural strengths and weaknesses and analyzing forces, trends and models to provide a blueprint for Virginia Beach's cultural development over the next 15 years. 

Over just six months, hundreds of individuals contributed to the Plan through meetings, interviews, events and surveys through the City's website. City Council approved the Virginia Beach Arts Plan 2030 on Dec. 8, 2015.​
