Cultural Democracy in Fresno

CALLING ALL LOCAL ARTS AND CULTURE LEADERS to share stories of a thriving cultural ecosystem through your experience in Fresno and the Central Valley. We’ll create a shared definition for Cultural Democracy, uplift themes of existing assets and challenges through a Story Circle, and wrap with a co-create vision for Fresno that centers collective imagination. You will walk away with a deeper local network, some organizing/art making/facilitation tools, and a connection to a national network of people planting seeds for a #CultureofBelonging.
