All of their activities flow directly from their mission of making the arts accessible:
they encourage and enhance public access to a full range of the arts and art modes, from traditional work by established artists and performers to contemporary work by emerging artists;
they help all in the community recognize themselves as artists and explore their abilities to make art, and in our programming and approach to programming we enact that commitment;
and finally, they work with other organizations in the region – arts presenters, business groups, and governmental agencies – toward their vision of a greater community that understands the powerful role the arts play in personal enrichment and community development, and the regional interconnections of all stakeholders in that vision.
