West Springfield Arts Council
West Springfield Arts Council (WSAC) Mission Statement:
The mission of WSAC is to promote, support, and encourage the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences within the West Springfield community.
Members of WSAC believe that people of all ages need exposure and experiences with the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences. These experiences are nourishment for the body, heart and mind.
Arts involve the creation, presentation and preservation of, and education about works in the following disciplines: Crafts, Design, Folk, Interdisciplinary, Literary, Media, Performing and Visual Arts.
Humanities are branches of learning that deal with self-awareness, language, reason, creativity, human values and aspirations and the products of all of these.
Interpretive Sciences are those activities that engage people of all ages in learning about nature, science and technology in ways that connect directly to their lives.
