The arts are a living, breathing part of our lives. They are all around us and seemingly woven into every memorable experience we have. The strong impact that the arts have in our community brings us closer together and allows us to communicate on a deeper level. They provide a language of beauty that bridges cultural divides through these shared experiences.

These experiences let us view our world in a new way, providing multiple interpretations that create meaningful conversations.
