Community Partners

The Arts Area approaches the three pillars of academic, economic, and civic engagement in a holistic manner to connect the disparate components of the community, support existing opportunities to reduce redundancies, and improve the overall health of the local creative economy. The advantages to having a coordinated network of creative industry partners include the ability to pool resources (such as staff time for standard business operations and writing funding proposals), pool buying power, coordinate community efforts, share valuable experience and knowledge, and marketing. Network collaboration will also build improved workforce and internship structures to better support the goals of local artists, academic institutions, and creative industry organizations and businesses. 

The Arts Area is reaching out to organizations and individuals for collaboration opportunities.
