Arts / Culture Take Action

Buffalo has a rich culture and history. Preserving, deepening, and broadening that tradition is essential to revitalizing the region. This means providing dedicated governmental funding for cultural groups, making culture a part of economic development, and moving quickly to preserve important historical sites and architecture. It also means valuing the cultures of indigenous peoples, African-Americans, Hispanics, and immigrants and refugees. Finally, it means recognizing that the arts are an essential part of any movement for justice and equality.
