A sign of a thriving community is an extensive participation in the arts. Live music promotes interaction in public spaces, increases civic participation through celebration, engages the youth in community events and encourages a positive community attitude. The Arts not only elevate the health and excitement of the area, it also inspires creativity that resonates in every aspect of the city. Businesses that support the local arts experience brand trust and recognition that cannot be obtained anywhere else. Supporting Urban Geographer means direct marketing to potential customers in your area as well as helping us build a strong community around art and music allowing artists of all ages to have a professional and safe place to perform.
