Our Mission and Vision

Our vision is to be an eloquent, innovative, and fertile nexus for the diverse members of the San Luis Obispo County, California, community to engage, discuss, and promote the arts. Our mission:

  • To cultivate support for the visual, literary, and performing arts in San Luis Obispo County.
  • To showcase the impact of the arts, cultural experiences, and authentic creative expression on the community.
  • To create an online space accessible to all for meaningful discussion, education, and commentary about the arts.
  • To communicate opportunities for artists, writers, performers, and students to explore and articulate their personal artistic expressions.

At SLO Review, we believe that when people feel respected and included they can be more creative, innovative, and successful. And whether related to accessibility, gender, ethnicity, age or sexual orientation, it’s important to find intentional ways to grow in our understanding and support of others.
