What word (or words) best NAME the community that we represent?
Consider the breadth of organizations, missions and functions of our sector: theatre companies, music organizations, dance groups, art museums, galleries, zoos, science centers, natural history museums, botanical gardens, arts presenters, libraries, cultural heritage organizations, independent & art film presenters, poetry groups & so much more!
We are obviously bigger than an “Arts Community.”
Does “Arts & Culture Community” sound as clinical to you as it does to me? (And does proper grammar mean that it should really be ”Arts and Cultural Community”?
My habit is to refer to “Arts Organizations & Cultural Destinations” – but I’ll admit that the ratio of 14 syllables to 5 words is problematic.
Might we be so bold as to say that we are the “Creative Community”? (or does that makes you think of advertising agencies and graphic designers.)
So what IS a concise, appropriate & compelling way to introduce the community we serve?
