Creative Community Connections Series

WheatonArts’ Creative Community Connections initiative is a series of programs inaugurated in 2004 to raise awareness of cultural heritages and to create a welcoming community setting for understanding, appreciating, and sharing the arts and cultures of our region’s extraordinarily diverse population.

Over the years, we have engaged artists and audiences of various cultural groups in profoundly meaningful conversations about perceptions of the past and challenges of the present; notions of life, aesthetics, and spirituality – all interpreted through arts. It is our goal to continue this dialogue while broadening and deepening our partnerships with the local communities.
