The Cultural Arts Commission receives annual assignments from City Council. The assignments may be modified or new assignments may be added throughout the year by the City Council. Commission agendas are prepared based on the current year's assignments, so each commission can discuss the issues and report back to the Council with recommendations, as appropriate.
The Mission of the Commission is to nurture and promote the arts and aesthetic quality of life in the City of Malibu. It achieves its Mission by:
Providing arts programming for all residents, including arts education and related outreach programs;
Supporting quality arts and culture in the City;
Promoting artistic and cultural activities and the inclusion of established, emerging and local artists;
Advising City Council on policies affecting the arts and cultural life of the City, its residents and the organizations that provide such services to the City.
