Arts Council to Generate Engaged & Vibrant Community
Sharing a philosophy that where arts flourish, communities prosper and lives are enriched, the Springfield Township Board of Trustees passed a resolution on September 26, 2012, authorizing the creation of a 501(c)3 Arts and Enrichment Council. By establishing the Arts and Enrichment Council, the community benefits with better access to the arts, expanded public events, a renewed public image, a more connected community, and increased economic interest for development in the township.
The Board of Trustees accepted letters of interest to serve on the council, held interviews, then appointed five officers to serve on the council. In accordance with the by-laws, Township Trustees will continue to appoint the Arts Council Officers bi-annually. The Arts & Enrichment Council received it’s official non-profit status in 2014.
The organization, now operating under the name ArtsConnect™ is a sustaining resource for arts and enrichment opportunities. ArtsConnect™ hosts around 30 events a year to help bring the community together. In addition to events, ArtsConnect™ facilitates art classes, summer camps and community volunteer projects.
The mission of the Springfield Township Arts and Enrichment Council is to create an engaged and vibrant community with quality of life enhancements through the arts, community events, and parks and recreation.
