Vision & Strategic Plan

The Cultural Coalition serves as the “voice” of the cultural sector and the liaison between the cultural sector and leadership entities invested in regional revitalization—municipal, community, business, education, tribal, military, and tourism sectors—our independent nonprofit coalition provides core services to connect, strengthen, and advocate for the cultural community.

Supporting the belief that culture is a catalyst for place making, the coalition seeks to play a creative, innovative role fostering partnerships among cultural sector assets and other regional initiatives seeking to advance regional identity, and attract and retain businesses, residents, and visitors.
