Community-Wide Initiatives

Due to our position within the community as an advocate, connector, and broker, GBCA often works with the cultural community to come together for regional or city-wide cultural events and initiatives. GBCA does not initiate or oversee these initiatives, it only assists in encouraging or coordinating participation.

As part of GBCA’s strategic plan, GBCA will begin hosting meetings with the cultural community to envision a region-wide cultural initiative to happen triennially.
