Fairfax County is among the 100 largest counties in the United States and is consistently ranked among the top 10 in household income. The Arts Council of Fairfax County represents and serves more than 100 arts organizations, thousands of artists and a resident population of more than 1 million. The Arts Council engaged METStrategies to facilitate the development of a five-year strategic plan to address the needs of its highly diverse and growing community. Through interviews and facilitated dialogue an informed consensus emerged that placed new emphasis on advocacy and making the arts an integral part of the character, community and economy of Fairfax County.
