Comprehensive Environmental Survey of Arts Resources
C.E.S.A.R. is a web-based interactive mapping tool that will pin-point and catalogue the District’s cultural assets by aggregating information regarding the density and clusters of individual artists throughout the city, and serve to inform DCCAH for future investments.
C.E.S.A.R. will be the first of its kind among state arts agencies in the U.S. Aligned with Mayor Bowser’s vision for a fresh start and an open and transparent government, C.E.S.A.R. will also provide an integrated mechanism for the public to more readily access information on DCCAH grant programs and activities.
“C.E.S.A.R.is an important step forward in how we can best serve our arts community and D.C. residents,” said Lisa Richards Toney, Interim Director of DCCAH. “Using the data we collect from this tool, we will be able to create future plans and initiatives that will have the most significant positive impact in our city.”
