In 1997, The Cleveland Foundation and The George Gund Foundation recognized that arts and culture organizations were facing some similar issues. Setting out to learn more about the sector and address these common causes, they commissioned a regional, community-wide, strategic cultural plan. The group charged with developing this plan became the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC). The Northeast Ohio’s Arts & Culture Plan, was released in May of 2000. CPAC continued to ensure that the plan was carried out and evaluated.
CPAC has evolved into a service provider focused on filling functional gaps identified through the planning process: capacity building, public policy and research.
