September is always an exciting time for the arts in Broward as we kick off another new season brimming with creativity, inspiration, and artistic excellence.
Broward County has long been a melting pot of cultures, with diversity that is reflected throughout our community. Our commitment to nurturing the arts is helping transform our region into a flourishing center of creativity and expression.
This October, we look forward to revealing the results of the latest annual Arts & Economic Prosperity Report. This report will illustrate the measurable impact of arts and culture on our local economy. We understand how vital the creative sector is in shaping our community’s identity and prosperity, and the findings of this important national study will further serve as a testament to the power of the arts in fostering economic growth, enhancing education, and enriching our lives.
As we move forward with a renewed sense of purpose, we are thrilled to announce our inaugural State of the Arts event on October 26. This occasion will gather arts enthusiasts, patrons, and stakeholders, offering a platform to reflect on accomplishments, address challenges, and chart a visionary path for the future. Together, we will celebrate the resilience of our artistic community and explore ways to ensure an even more vibrant and inclusive cultural landscape.
Looking ahead to the new year, IGNITE Broward, the much-anticipated annual arts and light festival, will return from January 24-28, 2024. The five days and nights will showcase the remarkable work of leading artists and designers who are at the forefront of today’s most innovative art and technology.
We are immensely proud of Broward County’s growth as a hub for great arts and culture. Our world-class venues, museums, and thriving creative institutions are all testaments to our commitment to fostering artistic excellence. However, our journey doesn’t end here. We understand that the heart of any cultural community lies in its people—the artists, the audiences, the advocates.
