The history and purpose of our organization go hand-in-hand with those of our regional creative communities.

Northwest Arkansas has always been a treasure trove of hidden gems, glistening pockets of insight and innovation. Our artists and creative industries form the equivalent of a beautiful network of caverns and hideaways, valuable deposits, strong foundations of rock and stone, and winding interconnected waterways.

As an arts service organization, CACHE helps to coordinate, connect, augment, export, and exchange these inspiring creative resources with the rest of the world.  Hence the imagery – but more importantly the ethos – of CACHE, a proud ambassador of Northwest Arkansas and its artists, culture-bearers, makers, dreamers, entrepreneurs, and collectives.

CACHE BELIEVES IN THE POWER OF ARTS, CULTURE, AND CREATIVITY TO:

Enhance the joy, impact, and gratitude of our everyday lives

Address critical social, racial, and environmental issues collectively

Sustain the health of our minds, bodies, and spirits

Empower the region and its people economically

Nurture community equity, inclusion, and diversity

Innovate alongside sister industries, movements and networks

Engage, connect, and cherish local and global talent

Intersect Northwest Arkansas with the world

Energize our resilience and recovery in challenging times
