Sharing culture enhances our quality of life and increases overall well-being for both individuals and communities.

"Arts and culture make considerable and necessary contributions to the well-being of communities.  Arts and culture are powerful tools with which to engage communities in various levels of change.  They are a means to public dialogue, contribute to the development of a community's creative learning, create healthy communities capable of action, provide a powerful tool for community mobilization and activism, and help build community capacity and leadership."
