Occupy Salem Arts Committee
* Recognizing that we each learn and communicate in our own ways, and celebrating the creative spirit within all of us, the Arts Committee’s mission is to facilitate opportunities for artistic expression in support of the Occupy movement within Occupy Salem and the whole community.
* To gather supplies, space and teachers for people to create expressive arts including visual arts, fiber arts, poetry, movement and music.
* To reach out to artists and craftspeople and invite their participation in the Occupy movement.
