Site lets users set funding priorities, explore financing solutions
MILWAUKEE — Marquette Law School and the Public Policy Forum are partnering to launch an interactive website that encourages citizens to set their own cultural and entertainment priorities for Milwaukee – then decide how to pay for them.
The site, which can be accessed at, presents users with information about potential investments in cultural and entertainment assets and organizations, then allows them to prioritize the projects they see as most important and explore what potential financing package – if any – should be assembled to meet those needs. Users may then share their customized list of priorities and solutions within their social networks.
The website’s goal is to foster continued public discussion of regional cultural and entertainment needs in the wake of a year-long series of deliberations conducted by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s Cultural and Entertainment Capital Needs Task Force in 2014.
“Asking Greater Milwaukee residents for their insights about the future of our cultural resources – our great parks, museums and fine arts institutions – is extremely important, ” said Michael R. Lovell, President of Marquette University. “With this civic participation, the Public Policy Forum and Marquette Law School will work together through this website to raise awareness of our city’s cultural and entertainment needs, and position our city as a destination for generations to come.”
Marquette Law School and the Public Policy Forum consider community engagement and public policy education as central to their missions, and are partnering on the site to help facilitate and advance those discussions. Neither institution endorses any particular course of action or advocates for public funding.
