The cultural landscape of Pinellas County has changed dramatically in the eighteen years since the last Pinellas Cultural plan. Today, the creative industry represents $2.2 billion in economic impact and, as an arts and cultural/tourist destination, the county welcomes over 15 million visitors annually.
This growth has been fueled by you: the art makers, cultural institutions, visitors who travel from all over the world to enjoy our artistic community,
residents and local supporters of the arts. You, and so many others, have all played a vital role in ensuring that our creative economy thrives. Now it’s time to collectively plan for the cultural future of Pinellas County, and we invite you to help us build on the successes of today. Current is the umbrella under which our cultural planning activities live, and we encourage you to visit our cultural planning website to learn more about how you can shape our artistic future and create a long-lasting and sustainable creative economy for Pinellas County residents and visitors.
