CreateAustin is a community cultural plan - for and by Austin, Texas.
The City of Austin Economic Development Department, in partnership with MJR Partners, is reimagining its Cultural Funding Program for arts, heritage, and music with an intentional focus on equity and inclusion, while more effectively promoting tourism to Austin, as well as the city’s convention and hotel industries. The Cultural Funding Program is funded through Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) proceeds from Austin’s convention and hotel industries.
Creating the right conditions for, and engaging in, cultural tourism can bring new resources to the community. To help you get started, we have collected links to reports, toolkits, and associations related to the topic of cultural and heritage tourism.
