Our Vision

The Flint Cultural Center campus provides area residents with an array of cultural, scientific, and artistic experiences and promotes understanding of the diverse cultures reflected in the Greater Flint community. The Center is a major educational resource, and a welcoming and inclusive community center.

The Flint Cultural Center is a model for how the arts, sciences and humanities can work collectively to create synergy among constituent institutions. It acts as a community catalyst, working with other organizations, individuals, and agencies to strengthen local and regional economic development, cultural understanding, and widespread support for the arts, sciences, and humanities.

Our Goals

  • To be good stewards of the public's trust
  • To maintain the highest standards of excellence
  • To provide a vibrant and comfortable community gathering place
  • To engage and involve the entire Greater Flint and Genesee County community through a variety of accessible program services on and off campus
  • To be a unique and valued educational resource that improves student and life-long learning throughout our community
  • To effectively communicate both individual and collective institutional identities
  • To create efficient and productive internal systems for accomplishing shared goals; and to enable each constituent institution to effectively pursue its
    individual mission and goals
  • To reflect the diversity of the regional community in the composition of Board, staff, volunteers, and visitors
  • To be connected to our community through relationships and partnerships with other community-based organizations and governmental agencies
  • To achieve recognition as a leader in and destination point for
    innovative cultural, entertainment, and educational programs and activities
