Advisors: Tim Freeze, Brooke Krause
Using the City of Wooster’s 2014 Comprehensive Plan as a guide, the team considered several options for a successful arts and culture district in downtown Wooster. The team researched similar districts in other communities and gathered information from stakeholders, members of the community and local administrators to inform their suggestions about what an arts and culture district might look like in Wooster and what its economic impact would be.

This project was made possible by financial support from the following organizations: The Andrew Fellowships Fund, The Laura B. Frick Charitable Trust, The Ralph R. & Grace B. Jones Foundation, The Donald & Alice Noble Foundation, Bala Venkataraman, The Wayne County Community Foundation, The Wilson Fellowships Fund, Wayne Center for the Arts, Downtown Arts Theater, the City of Wooster, United Way of Wayne and Holmes Counties, and Main Street Wooster.
Members of Wooster Arts and Culture District will be online to field comments on Nov. 5 from 11am-1pm.
