¯ Arts and cultural community engagement

¯ Master plan funding acquisition

¯ Targeted arts marketing campaign

¯ Organizational and artist support

¯ Arts and culturally driven economic development.

A position description for advisory board members can be found on the Community Development page of the village’s website, www.saranaclakeny.gov.
