Moving Forward

Moving forward with the Principles for Culturally Enriched Communities

Somali Wedding Basket, Minneapolis Institute of Art

Culturally Enriched Communities bring together policy makers, architects, interior designers, planners, health providers, educators, business owners, faith leaders, art directors, and community advocates to create spaces that optimize health and well-being, economic opportunities, productivity, learning, personal growth, and community togetherness.

The Principles and examples of best practices featured in this website are a beginning, not an end. Cities and counties are encouraged to start their own assessment and evaluation of what works and what can be strengthened to support diverse stakeholders and create healthy and connected communities in which everyone can thrive.
