Big Picture Initiative’s mission is to build a thriving and vibrant community for all by using arts and creativity as a driver for social change, economic development, and wellness. We do this by providing arts-based solutions, promoting and supporting artists and arts initiatives, and advancing arts education.
Moved by our deep conviction of the economic, social, and cultural value of the arts, Big Picture Initiative envisions a community where: The arts are recognized as essential to the success and sustainability of our collective future;
· Artists have the support, opportunity, and financial security to thrive;
· The arts are prioritized in local and state decision-making;
· People feel a sense of belonging, connection, and community pride; and
· Every person, no matter their age, ability, or background can participate in and find expression through the arts.
