Art’s Transformative Power focus of Burns Symposium Compelling stories of art contributing to economic and cultural vitality in rural communities highlighted the May 19 and 20 Southeast Oregon Symposium on the Arts and Economic Development in Burns.

“We heard very distinct and successful examples of where small, isolated rural communities have utilized the arts to strengthen local economy and quality of life,” says Brian Wagner, Arts Commission community development coordinator and event facilitator.
