From dance and music to theater and the visual arts, cultural programs give us, especially youth, a means of expression that helps capture our passions and emotions, allowing us to explore new ideas. The arts touch every aspect of our lives.
Since 1950, beginning with Family Concerts and Music Scholarships, TrueNorth has provided affordable, accessible arts experiences for local residents. The arts play a central role in the quality of life for people of all ages and backgrounds. Participation in the arts is especially important for children and youth, improving performance in school and promoting creative problem solving, self-discipline, and responsibility. TrueNorth Cultural Enrichment programs enhance area schools’ arts programs and provide area families with affordable, accessible arts opportunities that they would not otherwise experience.
