Our Vision

Our vision is a community that works together in support of the Arts, where opportunities to participate in the arts are readily available to all and individual artists are valued.

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the accessibility and quality of the arts in our region.

Our Values

We highly value collaboration, sustainability, and the vital role the arts play in creating healthy, thriving communities.
