Community Culture Programs

Community Culture Programs

Culture is the expression of characteristics specific to a particular group or region.  Culture promotes the formation of community bonds, the development of artistic achievement and the continued transfer of knowledge from one generation to another.

As an international organization with a strong global presence, Lions clubs represent cultures from every corner of the globe.  To celebrate diversity in our communities, you can support an existing culture project or choose to develop new culture project ideas. 

Cultural activities can include:
