Plenty of work happened behind the scenes, too. We continued researching the development of an Arts Endowment that would support our activities for many years to come. And, because we believe that creativity thrives in an inclusive, supportive and diverse culture, we spent six months developing an Anti-Racism statement and refining the values we intend to live by. Finally, we helped local artists and makers, both new and established, move their work forward by linking them with resources and marketing their events.
