The North County Arts Network’s mission is to ensure that the arts are recognized as vital in the lives of its people; develop an innovative vision, plan, and collaborative effort to strengthen the arts; serve, advance, and lead in the maintenance of a diverse network of institutions, businesses, and individuals who work in the arts and maintain a directory of arts resources and organizations in the region.

An Arts and Economic Summit was organized on October 18, 2017 at the Escondido Center for the Arts and attended by over 130 people.  If interested, please listen to the KPBS interview of its keynote speaker just before the event:

I was very honored to be the featured artist at the event.
