"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

"I value the creative industries because creative expression is a part of being human. If we close that off we stop growing and wither just as the plant that receives no water and sunlight."

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."
