The Commission supports the promotion and preservation of artistic and cultural resources on Cape Cod, especially as they relate to economic growth.
The Commission released "Leveraging Cultural Assets in Economic Development on Cape Cod", a report on best practices and lessons learned for integrating the creative sector into commerce, in early 2020. The guide is intended to inspire collaboration and strategic planning, elevate successful projects throughout the region, and strengthens the ties of our arts and economy. This is a ten-year update to a 2009 guide that provided guidance on how to design initiatives that maximize communities’ cultural assets for economic development.
The Commission’s GIS and Geodesign team has also worked with municipalities on creating cultural asset inventories, including the Towns of Wellfleet and Orleans.
