To create a quality sense of place by supporting the arts in every district of Fresno and the greater Fresno area.
In January 2004 a small group of young professionals got together to drive the popular Creative Cities Movement in Fresno. From that small initial group, Creative Fresno has moved on to become a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a bold, progressive board of directors who pride themselves on being creative problem solvers.
