WHAT'S HAPPENING

Morongo Basin Cultural Strategic Plan for Culture and Arts

JTLA was selected by a group of local arts leaders to guide the implementation of the Morongo Basin Strategic Plan for Culture and Arts.  JTLA will work in partnership with local arts organizations, government agencies, and businesses to achieve the plan’s established goals: 1) Expand cultural equity, 2) Build professional capacity for artists and organizations, 3) Grow arts education, and 4) Collaboratively market our cultural resources. This plan is a living document - a springboard for the Joshua Tree communities to begin addressing the needs of this growing arts and culture destination.
