Arts Alliance Guiding Principles

We respect and extend mutual support to all arts organizations in the Upper East River Valley. We do this by:
  • Listening and giving all members an equal voice
  • Dealing honestly with issues in a timely way
  • Acknowledging the validity of member organizations’ individual missions and goals
  • Collaborating on events and projects, whenever appropriate to minimize scheduling conflicts and maximize attendance
  • Acting as a sounding board for each other
We demonstrate the importance and value of the arts to the community. We do this through:
  • Increased visibility and education
  • Advocacy and a collective voice on behalf of shared interests that impact member organizations as well as relate to the visual and performing arts in the region
  • Participate and use data from studies that demonstrate the economic and cultural value of the arts to the community
We work together to advance the arts in the Upper East River Valley. We do this by:
  • Assuring that the performing and visual arts are diverse, affordable, and accessible to all
  • Actively supporting the growth and ongoing development of arts programs and facilities in our community
  • Fostering partnerships that enable the arts to flourish
