Arts and Cultural Resources

Creative * Diverse * Eclectic

We will honor our commitment to equity by continuing our work in the following ways:

  • Working with community members to develop programs that they believe support their vision and goals for the arts.
  • Engaging and encouraging people from under-represented groups to become part of our arts & cultural team as audience members, volunteers, board members, and members of our staff.   
  • Being allies by learning about and speaking up for equity, diversity, and inclusion.
