We love discovery and experimentation within the arts, fantastic successes and brilliant failures on (and off) stage.
We believe the arts are a catalyst for change in nearly every facet of community growth and deserve a seat at the table.
We trust in the power of what a few creative minded people can do to help a region truly thrive (and we also love a good party).
