Milwaukee’s Bronzeville Center for the Arts (BCA) has launched a questionnaire to better guide how it can help revitalize the district.
In partnership with M&E Architects + Engineers and HGA, the questionnaire from BCA encourages feedback from those who work, live and learn in Bronzeville. The BCA is looking for what makes a welcoming and inclusive experience, perceptions of Bronzeville, feedback on its programs and partnerships and how it can help improve the district.
“Feedback from this questionnaire will help us ensure that we hear from all interested voices,” Robert Parker, Executive Director and CEO of the BCA, said in a press release. “From day one, the BCA Board of Directors has been clear about its commitment to engaging the community throughout the process of bringing this cultural and arts development to life.”
The BCA was established in 2020 to highlight and celebrate African American art. Located in Bronzeville, a historically Black Milwaukee neighborhood, the center aims to advance institutional equity and provide a space for intergenerational connection, cultural and intellectual exchange. The BCA’s goal is to transform its space on the northeast corner of North Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive into a campus for all.
Results of the questionnaire will help guide BCA’s efforts in its goal to revitalize Bronzeville and improve its art and educational opportunities.
