Below is our Mission, Values, and Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We believe that the arts should welcome the expression and creativity of every person. We see art as a bridge that connects the people in our communities across cultures and artistic traditions.
We value the financial support of our community and use the resources we are entrusted with wisely. We strive to offer high quality arts experiences that meet our mission and our budget, while fairly compensating artists and our staff.
We believe that community engagement with the arts strengthens the social fabric of our cities. We create arts and culture programs that bring people together and we support other community organizations that do the same, embracing our longstanding leadership role in an increasingly vibrant artistic community. We believe that arts education in schools lays the foundation for children’s lifelong enrichment through art and future success in their chosen endeavors.
We bring creativity and ingenuity to our work and respond nimbly to changing circumstances. With a playful and innovative spirit, we embrace and showcase the artistry in everyday life. We provide arts experiences and resources that fill unmet needs in our community, and do it with style and flair.
We conduct our business with respect and expect the same of those who work with us. In the way we work with staff, partners, and artists, we model the way we believe professionals and artists should be treated. We value kindness in every interaction.
Including, valuing, and supporting individual voices generates powerful creativity. Shorelake Arts believes Diversity and Inclusion are vital components of a vibrant arts culture. We strive for Equity and encourage the unique perspectives and experiences that every artist and art lover brings to our community; we are richer for sharing in them.
Come as you are, as you were, as you want to be.
