"To preserve and promote this place as a destination for creative people and those who love the arts is a worthy and worthwhile goal. I'm proud to be a part of the creative process here and a member of the NFVCC. Thank you!"

Ben

"The creative industries are one of the many things that make this area so abundant and magical."

Shannon

"The Coalition helps us to growth together artistically as a community."

Lea

Andrea

"The creative industries enrich the lives of those who live and work in the North Fork value and encourage other people, who also value to arts, to move here."
