A Day of Art Immersion:Take the Tour

One of the best kept secrets in Broward County is the Cultural Tour, hosted by Business for the Arts of Broward. Business for the Arts of Broward and the Broward County Cultural Division escort a select group of business executives on a guided, behind-the-scenes tour of some of the county’s best cultural treasures. The Cultural Tour strengthens the connection between the business and culture community in Broward County by educating the business leaders on the importance of the arts and its economic impact to Broward County.

The tour was very informative and a really worthwhile way to spend a day! It was a pleasure to get to do a deep dive into the organizations, and I was particularly impressed that we had the opportunity have the key players as our tour guides at each location.” Nanette Saylor, Director of Trash2Treasure.

“I would describe it as a day of art immersion. It was illuminating to realize that there is something for everyone in Broward – diverse art, theatre, and culture, it’s all here for the taking. I would never have known it unless I went on the tour.” Juliet Roulhac, Regional Manager External Affairs, Florida Power & Light Company.

Take the Tour! Remaining 2014 Tour dates are July 25, September 26 & November 21. Contact Robyn Vegas, Program Coordinator for Business for the Arts of Broward at rvegas@bfabroward.org for more information.
