The Cultural Affairs office fosters and promotes arts and culture throughout the City of Pinellas Park. Created in 2015, the first initiative of the new office is to coordinate development of the Pinellas Park Creative District, including expansion of affordable artist residential, studio, and gallery space and the activation of the City's historic downtown through popular events such as the monthly Art Walk.
They also facilitate the emergence of the Cultural District within the Community Redevelopment Area, and to promote the arts, history, and culture throughout Pinellas Park community.
