The arts form the foundation of a city’s creative environment. Artists act as creators and individual entrepreneurs who provide many of the products that drive innovation and shape a city’s cultural character. The arts offer a distinctive blend of benefits:
A strong arts sector is an economic asset that stimulates business activity and attracts tourism.
The arts create a welcoming sense of place and desirable quality of life.
The arts feed young imaginations and facilitate children’s success in school by providing critical thinking, communications and innovative skills.
The arts preserve unique cultural and heritage, passing a precious cultural character and traditions along to future generations
In Bismarck and Mandan, we have a remarkable mix of local arts and cultural assets
that are helping us enrich our lives everyday. It’s important to keep these local arts strong.
And, to build new opportunities. It takes a mixture of both public and private funds to support the arts.
By supporting and growing our local talent,
you can help make our area an even more desirable place to live and raise families.
