The Town of Hilton Head Island will hold meetings Oct. 28 and 29 to discuss its role in fostering arts and cultural groups.

The meetings will coincide with an online survey to gauge support for arts programs and determine how they should be funded.

Residents will be asked at the meeting to participate in "community conversations" on the needs, vision and aspirations of the cultural life of Hilton Head, according to the town.

The meetings will be facilitated by the Cultural Planning Group of Philadelphia. The firm was hired by the town to study a possible collaboration among local performing and cultural arts organizations to make their operations more efficient and help them support themselves.

The Oct. 28 meetings are from noon to 1 p.m. in council chambers at Town Hall; and 6 to 7 p.m. at Palmetto Electric Cooperative, 111 Mathews Drive, and at the Coastal Discovery Museum, 70 Honey Horn Drive. The Oct. 29 meetings are from 9 to 10 a.m. in council chambers, and 6 to 7 p.m. at Palmetto Electric and the Coastal Discovery Museum.

A link to the survey also is available on the town's website at Residents can participate in the survey through October.
