|Who We Are|
Formed in 2006, pursuant to County Resolution 2005-331, our legal name is the "County of Summit Regional Arts and Cultural District Board of Trustees." Fifteen trustees appointed by County Council for three-year terms serve without compensation. Council appropriates public funds for the grants administered by the Arts and Cultural District Board. Representatives of Council and of the County Executive serve on the Board.
The Arts and Cultural District Board currently makes grants to not-for-profit organizations and agencies for activities in the performing arts, the visual arts, and architecture, design, and preservation which serve the citizens of Summit County and promote cultural and economic development.
The goal of the Arts and Cultural District Board is to strengthen the quality of life for the citizens of Summit County through activities in arts and culture. The Board believes that the arts-and-cultural sector is an essential asset in building a thriving community. While its long-term goals include strengthening arts and cultural non-profit organizations, the Board supports activities rather than general operating budgets or endowments.
