Empower individuals, inspire unity, transform communities. 

"What art is, in reality, is this missing link, not the links which exist. It's not what you see that is art; art is the gap." - Marcel Duchamp

Culture is what makes us different, but it can also be what bridges the gap between individuals and communities. A sense of meaning and belonging are essential to a healthy human experience and every endeavor (whether commercial or social) relies on the tools that help hearts and minds come together.


Arts and culture have the power to unite people, regardless of background or age. They evoke empathy, compassion and give us a way to create community and connect to each other. The social fabric is strengthened by the artists who serve it, but creative workers also need fellowship and ally-ship  to advance and advocate for their industry. Arts organizations, entrepreneurs, and public servants excel when they join forces and leverage their strengths in service to one another.

There is no easier or more effective way to develop an authentic relationship with the broader community than through the portal of local arts programs that serve education, historically excluded populations, healthcare services, social groups, commercial entertainment, and economic development initiatives.


Art is for everyone, including you.
