Kota seni merupakan ilham daripada kerajaan negeri Selangor dimana usaha ini perlu digarap dan direalisasikan bagi memastikan budaya dan seni yang ada di Negara kita boleh diperolehi dan dirasai hanya di Petaling Jaya.

Kota Seni diadaptasi berteraskan kebudayaan dan kesenian yang ada di Malaysia dimana ianya perlu ditonjolkan bagi memastikan ianya tidak ditelan zaman di era kemodenan ini. Jesteru itu, pembangunan fizikal perlu disokong dengan elemen kebudayaan dan kesenian bagi memastikan Kota Seni berjaya di realisasikan.

Elemen kebudayan dan kesenian terdiri daripada muzik, visual, audio, tarian, lukisan, seni kraftangan, barangan vintage, pakaian dan lain-lain yang berunsurkan kerja seni. Oleh itu, dengan adanya Kota Seni di Petaling Jaya penduduk setempat dan pelancong boleh memahami dan menghayati  konsep seni dan budaya serta mendapatkan produknya.
Kesenian dan kebudayaan Malaysia juga secara demokratis, dimana penduduknya boleh menerima kepelbagaian seni dan budaya ini dan Kota Seni tertumpu di Pusat Bandar Petaling Jaya yang mampu meningkatkan taraf ekonomi setempat dimana matlamat jangka panjang ialah untuk menarik minat dan perhatian penduduk setempat khususnya dan pelancong asing secara amnya.

Disamping itu, Kota Seni merupakan platform untuk penggiat seni tempatan untuk menonjolkan bakat mereka. Tambahan pula, dengan adanya Kota Seni, penduduk setempat juga akan mendapat keuntungan dimana infrastruktur dikawasan setempat akan dinaiktarafkan serta menjadi kawasan yang strategik.

Oleh itu, di Kota Seni nanti akan berlangsungya pementasan muzik, tarian, penunjukan karya sastera, seni dan filem dan penjualan produk seni secara karya jalanan. Kota seni bukan sahaja untuk memberi kemudahan kepada penduduk tempatan bahkan kepada pelancong asing yang mahu merasai dan memperoleh seni dan budaya Malaysia hanya di satu tempat yang menarik dan unik, tetapi ianya juga sebagai penghargaan kepada penggiat seni yang selama ini sebagai penjaga warisan turun menurun.

  1. Menjadikan Petaling Jaya sebagai bandar Seni dan Budaya di mana  elemen produk seni dan aktiviti budaya yang ada di Malaysia dihimpunkan di sini.
  2. Menyedia, mengurus, menyelenggara dan menjaga segala aset dan elemen seni negara Malaysia yang terdapat di dalam Kota Seni.
  3. Memberi penghargaan dan peluang khusus kepada penggiat seni untuk terus berkarya dan memperkenalkan ianya kepada generasi Y.
  4. Memartabatkan produk seni dan aktiviti budaya tempatan ke taraf antarabangsa melalui program yang bakal berlangsung.
  5. Menjadikan Kota Seni Petaling Jaya sebagai pusat tumpuan kepada penduduk tempatan dan pelancong asing bagi pencinta seni dan budaya.
Bagi memastikan Kota Seni Petaling Jaya ini dapat direalisasikan seiring dengan arahan daripada pihak kerajaan Negeri Selangor yang mahu menjadikan bandar Petaling Jaya mempunyai identiti seni dan budaya dan seterusnya dikenali oleh orang ramai mestilah mempunyai tempat yang menarik untuk dilawati. Dasar pelaksaan ini ialah jentera yang terpenting bagi menggerakkan perkembangan Kota Seni dan MBPJ telah memutuskan untuk memilih tiga badan untuk diperjuangkan di polisi Kota Seni iaitu Persembahan Seni, Seni Lukisan dan Pasar Budaya.

Tiga badan yang terpilih mempunyai bertanggungjawab untuk menyusun program yang akan dijalankan untuk Kota Seni Petaling Jaya dimana ianya berperanan sebagai senjata yang sangat penting bagi menghidupkan Kota Seni ini. Kategori-kategori ini dipilih kerana mempunyai elemen seni dan budaya yang merupakan teras Kota Seni iaitu mahu menjadikan Petaling Jaya sebagai bandar yang menjulang seni dan budaya Malaysia. Oleh itu, pemilihan tiga kategori ini sangat terperinci bagi memastikannya ianya tidak lari dari tujuan sebenar.  Penjelasan mengenai objektik dan misi Kota Seni ini telah diberi kepada badan yang bertanggungjawab di dalam menguruskan program bagi memastikan mereka sebati dengan acuan yang diperlukan.

Oleh itu, ketiga-tiga badan ini diberikan masa percubaan bagi membuktikan mereka benar-benar berkebolehan untuk menghidupkan Kota Seni Petaling Jaya ini. Ini merupakan perkara terpenting bagi memastikan tujuan utama penubuhan Kota Seni ini tidak tersimpang dan matlamat tercapai. Jesteru itu, tiga badan ini hendaklah berusaha sehabis baik bagi merealisasikan polisi Kota Seni ini dengan mewujudkan bandar seni dan budaya. Segala modul dan program di bawah penyelarasan ketiga-tiga badan ini hendaklah bertemakan seni dan budaya yang ada di Malaysia dan mestilah tidak lari dari tema yang telah ditetapkan kerana ghairah di dalam melaksanakan projek tersebut.


Pasar Budaya Petaling Jaya adalah idea yang diinspirasikan dari pengumuman komitmen Kerajaan Negeri Selangor kepada Agenda Seni melalui Polisi Kota Seni di bawah tanggungjawab Green Planet. Ia dapat memenuhi kehendak kerajaan terutama dari aspek menjadikan budaya seni sebagai cabang ekonomi negeri. Melalui Pasar Budaya Petaling Jaya, penggerak dan aktivis seni mendapat ruang untuk tujuan perniagaan dan pameran produk seni masing-masing. Ruang ini sangat di perlukan oleh penggerak dan aktivis seni untuk meneruskan kerjaya dan meluaskan pasaran produk mereka di kawasan yang memiliki nilai pasaran penduduk kelas pertengahan dan tinggi.

  1. Merancakkan ekonomi seni di Selangor sesuai dengan hasrat Agenda Kota Seni Kerajaan Negeri Selangor bagi Bandaraya Petaling Jaya
  2. Membuka ruang perniagaan di kawasan bernilai tinggi bagi peniaga dan golongan seni memasarkan barangan dan perkhidmatan mereka.
  3. Melahirkan masyarakat sentiasa hidup dengan interaksi sihat melalui aktiviti seni, kebudayaan dan intelektual.
  4. Membuka ruang untuk penggiat seni melakukan aktiviti seperti nyanyian, teater jalanan, pameran arca dan lukisan.
  5. Memperkasakan peniaga melalui didikan penjenamaan dan platform perniagaan yang sesuai dengan perkembangan ekonomi terkini.
