In 2012, the San Diego City Council voted unanimously to approve a “Penny for the Arts” plan that would allocate 9.52% of the city’s Transient Occupancy Tax to Arts and Culture funding. 

That was the plan to fund Arts and Culture in San Diego and it is a good plan.

Unfortunately, even though this was passed by Council, the Arts and Culture community have been pushing ever since to realize that goal.


The Arts+Culture:San Diego coalition members are dedicated to, and focused on, achieving Penny for Arts and Culture.

On this website you can discover the exceptional diversity of Arts and Culture activities throughout San Diego.
