Cultural Pass

Cultural Pass is one project that was created from Vision Louisville. The passes are the result of a joint initiative to promote art and cultural education in Louisville and increase summer learning. Launched during the summers of 2014-2015, over 100,000 Cultural Passes have been issued to Louisville's youth. Cultural Passes may be picked up at any Louisville Free Public Library branch. You can register and track the progress of your Cultural Pass online at
