The Marin Cultural Association supports art and culture in Marin County, increasing participation, advancing collaboration, and optimizing resources to create greater access to the arts for all Marin County residents regardless of age, race, ability, or means.



Marin County’s Art and Culture Master Planning Process is Underway


The Department of Cultural Services, in partnership with the Marin Cultural Association, the Marin Coalition for the Arts, and arts leaders from all over the County, is developing an arts and culture master plan for Marin.

The richness of Marin County’s creative sector is among the proudest elements of our communal identity. Arts, Culture, Action! will document, capitalize, support and enhance the county’s creative sector to maximize its benefits to all members of our community.

Join the conversation!


From world-renowned musicians, to prolific fine artists and arts and crafts traditions, to cutting-edge film, performance and youth arts programs, Marin County has an incredible cultural history. Yet currently, our county’s vast cultural resources are diffuse and disconnected, functioning without a cohesive vision and the necessary supports to truly thrive.


We’ve got work to do, and we want you to be a part of it!



Mark your calendars for our Community Arts Planning Forums. Show up and speak up for strong arts and culture goals—and bring your friends and neighbors!
