In the United States, communities are finding that the arts play a crucial and valuable role in their community economic development efforts. These art-based approaches are widely accepted because the amenities and aesthetics of a community are increased to enhance its overall image and consequently, attract additional growth and development. The Port Towns Community Development Corporation is likewise using art to improve our community, and also getting youth involved and educated about the history of where they live.
