Jackson County and all of Oregon’s unique culture
surrounds us . . .
sustains us . . .
helps us grow.
It plays a crucial role in the lives of Oregonians, in our economy and our future.
It can be found in a local museum or historic cemetery, at a dance performance or creative writing workshop, at a Chatauqua lecture in a local library, and at one of Oregon’s 40,000 archeological sites.
It can be heard in tribal language and oral histories, in Shakespearean verse, in the music of a marching band or symphony.
It can be seen in thousands of galleries, in native basket weavings, and in public art installations throughout our state.
Our culture includes the arts, heritage, and humanities in all their variety.
