The Partnerships that Make a Society

“Society is indeed a contract. It is a partnership in all science; a partnership in all art; a partnership in every virtue, and in all perfection. As the ends of such a partnership cannot be obtained in many generations, it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.”- Edmund Burke

Here is a brief spotlight of a few of our members who know the value of a healthy society:

Glendale Arts is a private nonprofit organization charged with managing the Alex Theatre and coordinating resources that are designed to benefit Glendale-based artists, arts organizations, businesses, government agencies and local schools. Established in July 2008, Glendale Arts is the culmination of a community-wide arts assessment that included input from Alex Regional Theatre board and staff, and city and community leaders. They provide resources to foster and strengthen the capacity of artists and arts organizations, and to improve the economic vitality and quality of life of the community by offering programs of cultural and educational value. For more information about Glendale Arts or how to get involved, please contact Elissa Glickman, general manager, at (818) 243-2611, ext. 14, or email info@glendalearts.org or visit www.glendalearts.org.
