How can we build on Moorhead's rich cultural history and wealth of arts and cultural resources to create a vibrant future?

Moorhead has long been known as a place that invites creative expression, a place that is welcoming of people of all ages and a home to cultural expression in a breadth of forms.  The City of Moorhead is developing a vision for the future of Arts and Culture in Moorhead.  The goal is a roadmap that articulates the value of arts and culture to be incorporated into community and economic development activities and inspires the growth of the creative sector throughout the city.  Your voice is important in shaping the future of our arts and cultural community.
