Community Connection Starts With the Arts

Do you want to knit together a community of interest but wonder what to use and do to build those ties? The arts have the potential to sew the seams of a community frayed by a sense of loss or a lack of belonging. Communities across the country are harnessing the arts to build stronger regional communities and are reaping the socio-economic benefits.

Join a panel of experts as it leads demonstrations of art creation in order to build connections, empathy, understanding and inclusion. And learn how to measure the many successes of such projects.
