Arts & Culture Approach

Lake City is home to a diverse artistic community. By compiling a list of artist, musicians and those interested in sharing their unique culture with the broader community we hope to see opportunities to grow in Lake City for the benefit of all. Artistic and Cultural expression crosses barriers and builds community while enhancing our collective experience. Enjoy Lake City will work with other local organizations and community partners to promote and highlight the wealth of artistry in this community. We hope to build a committee that reflects our communities diversity and works closely with the ELC board toward our broader mission of convening and promoting Lake City.
