IAC > About the Commission > Strategic Plan > Web Cafe: IAC Strategic Plan 2017-2021 Web Cafe: IAC Strategic Plan 2017-2021

Artists, Organizations, and Community Leaders: Tell us what's important to you. As we enter the final phase of Strategic Planning for 2017-2021, the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) is gathering input from Hoosiers across the state.

To do so, the IAC is partnering with its Regional Arts Partners to host one hour Web Cafe community input opportunities. IAC Executive Director Lewis Ricci and facilitators will guide live and online audiences for input on top plan goals and objectives for 2017-2021. An open-ended Q&A will be included.  

All input and results gathered will be collected and posted on the IAC website following the Web Cafe.

What Happens Next

The Web Cafe is one piece of a large puzzle as we move forward in the strategic planning process. In addition to the results of the Web Cafe, we will consider results from various strategic planning sessions with Commissioners and staff to identify the IAC's top priorities and goals for the final phase (2014-2016) of the current Strategic Plan.

Your input from the Web Cafe as well as the results of our other strategic planning sessions will be brought to the full Commission at our quarterly meeting in December 2013. From there, the Commission will identify the top priorities and goals for the final phase of our Strategic Plan. Once these priorities and goals have been identified, they will be made public on our website.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will the IAC use my feedback?

The input gathered from constituents will be used to inform the IAC's goals, priorities, and objectives for the final phase of the current strategic plan.

How can I see others' feedback?

Recordings from both the morning and evening sessions and results gathered are posted above.

Why did the IAC use a web-based format to collect feedback?

When we developed the current Strategic Plan, we held a series of public forums throughout the state to gather public input. By using this web-based format with the generous partnership of our Regional Arts Partners, we were able to accomplish in one virtual statewide meeting what took us several weeks to do previously.

Will the IAC use this type of web-based format for future programs and services?

We are currently exploring whether a web-based format similar to the Web Cafe is an effective and efficient way to offer other programs and services to our constituents around the state.

Other questions? Contact Paige Sharp at psharp@iac.in.gov or 317-232-1279.

The Web Cafe was made possible by a partnership between the Indiana Arts Commission, the Indiana State Library, and the Regional Arts Partnership.
