Envision the Future of the Arts

Do you have ideas for the future of the arts in Newport? We are seeking input for the Vision 2040 project in a creative format: drawing, painting, dance, photography, song, music, theater, writing, storytelling, and more! The first hour will be devoted to a “show and tell.” Come share your creative vision for the future of the arts with other community members. The second hour will involve a group visioning session. All ages are welcome. More info here.

What is a community vision?
A vision is a statement of our common values and, as such, is strongest when there is broad public engagement. Greater Newport's 2040 visioning process offers an opportunity for the community to envision the future it wants and the steps that collectively need to be taken to make that desired future a reality. Every effort will be made to encourage community-wide participation, with a specific focus on multi-cultural engagement.
