After more than a decade of fostering the growth of arts and culture in the metro area, Bravo Greater Des Moines is revising its strategic plan and possibly its mission.


Along with a leadership change -- Executive Director Sally Dix took over in January -- Bravo is taking a look at its future.


After several months of talking with stakeholders, Bravo's leadership has gotten a big-picture look at how it might focus its efforts in the future. The organization's primary role now is to allocate tax-funded grants to arts, cultural and heritage organizations. It also encourages collaboration among those organizations. 


Feedback from stakeholders helped Bravo determine the focus of questions it is asking as the group's leadership works to flesh out its strategic plan. This week, Bravo sent out a community engagement survey, open to anyone, to provide their thoughts on the organization and its future.


We at the Business Record also want to know what the business community thinks Bravo could or should do in the future.



VOTE: Is Bravo doing enough to foster arts and culture in the metro area?


With Dix's help, we created a quick survey to gauge how the arts and culture impact your life and to also ask the question -- is Bravo doing enough to foster arts and culture in the metro area? If not, what more can be done?


Take our survey. Your answers could be used in a Business Record story focusing on Bravo's next steps in Greater Des Moines.
