￼￼Arts Central has a two-fold purpose; to cultivate creative minds by making the arts accessible to all and to advocate for integration of the arts in all aspects of community life. The arts provide a new way of observing, interpreting and experiencing the world, and new perspectives lead to innovative ways of solving problems and interacting with every aspect of life. That is why we provide arts education services to individuals, schools and community organizations throughout Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties. We also work with individuals, businesses, governments, educators and nonprofits to bring the arts into every facet of our region. Because the arts are essential to a healthy, vibrant community and when a strong creative economy exists, we all benefit.
