This site is a collaborative and advocacy site for Arts+Culture: San Diego

Welcome to Arts+Culture:San Diego!

Arts+Culture:San Diego is a coalition of over 100 arts and culture organizations.

We are dedicated to strengthening our diverse cultural ecosystem and achieving funding for arts and culture in both the City and County of San Diego.

What is the Penny for Arts and Culture?

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 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 with one of the following links.
