Greater Cleveland’s diverse arts and culture sector will be a leading partner in contributing to our community’s vitality and enlivening the human experience.
To strengthen, unify and connect greater Cleveland’s arts and culture sector.
Arts and culture is an essential asset in building and sustaining a vibrant, thriving community.
Arts and culture has a unique power to produce developmental, intellectual and emotional benefits for each individual and should be widely available and experienced by all people.
Creative and innovative ideas are central to our community’s growth and development. Greater Cleveland benefits when leaders engage and support creative and innovative individuals and organizations.
