4Culture has reported the results of discussions by a series of study groups generating ideas for a potential new funding program based on the Cultural Access for Washington law. Five groups of arts, heritage, and culture representatives from around King County looked at eligibility, large regional organizations, smaller community organizations, education, and county-wide cultural initiatives. AKCHO representatives attended several of the study group meetings in July and August. Executive Director Jim Kelly and 4Culture staff presented their findings September 21 at Washington Hall in Seattle.
