Creative Cape Cod is committed to:

Accessibility: It is important to us that everyone has the opportunity to engage in art making, and we work hard to remove barriers that could inhibit participation. We actively seek out diverse voices, perspectives, and talents, promoting inclusivity and equal access for all.

Empowerment: We believe that everyone is capable of expressing themselves creatively, and we provide a nurturing environment that supports personal growth and self-discovery.  

Social Impact:  We recognize the power of the arts to effect positive change in our community and beyond by facilitating  collaboration and projects that promote authentic conversations between neighbors and visitors alike.

Celebrating the Process: We understand that the creative process is itself an essential part of being human. By valuing experimentation, risk-taking, and the joy of discovery, we encourage innovation, resilience, and lifelong learning.

Through our commitment to creativity, accessibility, personal empowerment, and celebration of the creative process, we aspire to contribute to a vibrant community where artmaking flourishes, enriching the lives of all.
