Cultural Congress has moved to October 11-13, 2018
The goal of the Cultural Congress is to gather arts, heritage and culture leaders from around the state to develop a statewide agenda, discuss the most important issues facing the region, and network.

There are four proposed programming tracks:
- Research and Education
- Funding and Development
- Youth Empowerment
- Social Justice and Equity
- United Messaging in the Arts
- Developing the Next Generation of Arts Leaders
- Social Emotional Learning
