Cultural Connections

Welcome to the Cultural Connections site - a section of our site dedicated to sharing Cumberland County's cultural heritage tourism strategies with residents and visitors. Here, one can learn about our Cultural Connections task force that was formed to implement our 5-year strategic plan. Additionally, you can read about the importance of implementing a cultural heritage tourism plan and find more resources about this type of tourism and how the principals can be adopted and applied everywhere.

The purpose of the Cultural Connections Task Force is to advise and make recommendations to the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (FACVB) on matters pertaining to the development and implementation of the Cultural Heritage Tourism Development Plan.

The mission of Cultural Connections is to:

  • Establish and develop a shared vision for the region.
  • Strengthen partnerships to preserve, promote and educate
  • Create and provide access to resources and programs for stewardship of our culture.
  • Enhance and develop historic sites and landscapes.
  • Utilize culture and heritage to stimulate economic development through sustainable tourism practices.
