Arts & Cultural vitatlity

Arts and Cultural Vitality. It makes us human, engages us socially, preserves our authenticity, heritage and traditions. It is a vital component of leisure and a thriving economy. The cultural community provides a wide variety of high-quality fine arts and folk arts to the largest possible audiences; accessible to all citizens at many facilities, and integrated into our educational curriculum in a systematic manner at all levels. Business and government recognize and support the economic, social and spiritual benefits of developing cultural resources within our community.
