New Arts District Committee’s First Meeting on Monday

A new committee has been created by Mayor, Scott Matas by City Council members Yvonne Parks and Joe McKee, to explore the possibilities of developing a cultural district in Desert Hot Springs.

Their fist meeting is on Monday, March 21st at 6pm at the Carl May Community Center on West and Pierson (City Council Chambers). Facebook event is here.

For more information about getting involved, see this post.

We at the AFDHS are excited about this new development and we are encouraging the whole community to come down and get involved.

Although direct involvement in creating an arts district is not part of our mission currently, we have formed a cultural partnership with a new group called Desert Arts Districts (DAD). They are an informal, unincorporated group that is seeking out veteran arts professionals with experience in arts districts to join their online community and act as mentors, content contributors, and centers of influence to guide those who are just getting started in the field.

They have announced their intent to provide tools and resources to the new committee in Desert Hot Springs, starting with a community forum on their site designated for DHS Arts District topics.

DAD (Desert Arts Districts) can be found at or on Facebook or Twitter.

We hope we will see you at the meeting on Monday or online in the forum, voicing your opinions and helping the City create a successful cultural district plan that serves the needs of our community.
