Arts & Culture – About the Committee

The EC Arts & Culture Committee is dedicated to serving the arts and culture community of the 2nd Supervisorial District, and acting as a conduit for information between the community and elected officials. We support issues that create opportunities for arts practitioners to have the means of creative production, and to achieve economic sustainability. We advocate to create a community where all residents of the 2nd Supervisorial District have unhindered access to arts and culture in their community, and arts are embedded in the education system as a core part of every school curriculum.
