Near NorthWest Arts Council
NNWAC was founded by artists, teachers, and social activists. The purpose continues to resonate after more than two decades: to share the power of creativity, building a network of resources that supports a vibrant arts environment, in a neighborhood context. Why do we need culture? And what does culture do for community? It adds value, attracts investment, engages students more deeply, builds and sustains social groups. All human intelligence including scientific and political knowledge is derived from artistic creativity. Everyone needs to be creative.
