Every five years the Wyoming Arts Council completes a new strategic plan in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts. A summary of the recently developed strategic plan for 2022-2027 is available here.
The Wyoming Arts Council provides leadership and invests resources to champion, sustain, and cultivate community through the arts.
The Wyoming Arts Council envisions a Wyoming where the arts are a driving force in the social, economic, educational, and everyday life of its citizens.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2014, there were 11,451 jobs devoted to our state’s creative sector, which is 30% above the national average and second only to New York.
The Arts contributed $763.6 billion to the U.S. economy in 2015, 4.2 percent of GDP and counted 4.9 million workers, who earned $372 billion in total compensation.
The Wyoming Arts Council believes that experiencing the arts should be accessible for all, including people with mental and/or physical disabilities, older adults, military/veterans, people living in institutions and those who lack access to the arts due to geographic isolation, cultural difference and economic hardship.
