Public officials from across the region celebrate the power of arts and culture in the community.

Enjoy coffee and breakfast surrounded by art and good company. Arts and culture is core to our region’s identity. This is an opportunity to build and maintain important civic relationships around that very premise. Lively discussions, pride in our region’s cultural assets and warm recognition of arts and culture partnerships characterize this unique moment.

The Public Officials Recognition Breakfast is an annual tradition for arts and culture supporters that began with Assembly’s founding partner organizations in 2015. Assembly continues this important recognition of public-private partnerships throughout creative industries in Northeast Ohio. Arts leaders, corporate representatives, artists, and community members of all kinds are invited to connect and build relationships with government officials.
