Bernalillo County Cultural Assets Mapping and Survey Study

Bernalillo County, along with Creative Albuquerque, conducted this study in 2013; results are being used to take an in-depth look at the county’s cultural resources to plan for future investment, consider public needs and desires, tourism marketing strategies and future arts and cultural programming.

Cultural Services thanks the Bernalillo County residents who participated in this important study. If you have any questions, please contact Cultural Services Manager Bernadette Miera at (505) 468-1279 or email her at bmiera@bernco.gov.
