Cultural Arts Coalition's Mission and Goals
This is a working document that expresses an evolving dialogue by the participants of Cultural Arts Coalition, an Arizona community participation group open to all interested individuals.
2. Examine and explore "guiding arts' practices" of programming that meet the needs of community.
3. Celebrate and feature projects and programs at regular meetings as well as larger, community focused forums.
4. Document and publish methods and examples of successful cultural arts delivery in academic and community settings.
5. Generate connections across an expanding network of individuals and groups who embrace the mission and goals of the Cultural Arts Coalition.
The Cultural Arts Coalition does not exist to replicate those arts and cultural organizations that are already functioning in specific capacities. Rather the CAC is meant to be a supportive agency of concerned citizens that provides an expanded definition of the arts in community settings and helps to provide some measurable tools and guidelines that can assist anyone wanting to get involved with community cultural/arts activities.
For the purpose of Cultural Arts Coalition, "community" is presently defined as the people who reside within one locality, following similar codes of conduct (laws), values and beliefs and having similar interests (possibly being determined by a similar cultural background).
The third gathering of the Cultural Arts Coalition on July 22, 2005, at the ASU Art Museum brought together more than 25 people from many walks of life: artists, arts educators and professors, museum directors and educators, arts commission representatives, gallery owners and community arts activists. It was determined that the Cultural Arts Coalition is a valuable asset to continue promoting the arts, but more importantly defining, promoting and supporting arts in community settings.
The communities the Cultural Arts Coalition honors are sustained by your participation.
