Their goals are to stimulate, coordinate and assist in the development of cultural and creative activities in the community. In addition to their programs and events, they strive to meet these objectives on a daily basis by acting as a central resource and referral agency, and by advocating for artists and the arts as a whole.  In particular, they act as an umbrella organization to support member groups, as well as visual and performing artists who in turn provide performances, lessons, exhibits and opportunities for aspiring artists and members of the community to participate in their events.
