What is the role of the Cultural Council to engage and bring awareness?
As Jacksonville’s local arts agency, the Cultural Council is committed to investing in the arts and culture in the region. One way that we invest in our community is by using a variety of communication vehicles—social media, newsletters, television media, and our website—to spread the word about the incredible creativity that exists here. Creativity is happening around us every day and the Cultural Council is doing our part to ensure that the community knows that artists are producing new work, they are interpreting and documenting these turbulent times through thought-provoking work, and they are entertaining us. Our social media posts often give first-hand accounts about what is happening in our community. Our calendar of events links audiences to our community’s many long-standing arts organizations; in other words, we bring awareness by amplifying the public engagement efforts of the arts and cultural industries of our community.
