Cultural Vitality Community Leaders

Spartanburg Regional History Museum

The Spartanburg Community Indicators Project partners with Indicator Area Leaders to improve outcomes in each of its seven Indicator Areas.  These organizations set improvement goals based on indicator data and lead individuals, businesses and community groups to coordinate efforts and information, thus facilitating steady progress in quality of life improvement.

 

The Chapman Cultural Center serves as the Indicator Area Leader for the Cultural Vitality Indicator Area. The Center convenes a group of professional, amateur and nonprofit groups working together to improve cultural vitality outcomes in Spartanburg County. They coordinate their efforts through a council and Priority Groups being established now.
