Strengthening artists and arts and culture organizations to increase their impact in our region.
OUR VISION FOR THE REGION
CultureWorks values diversity and inclusivity and believes everyone in our community should have access to arts and culture, as well as the opportunity to express their culture through the arts.
Our vision is a vibrant region through empowered artists and arts and culture organizations.
