CRESTVIEW — The Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce’s Arts and Culture Committee has several ideas to advance its mission, its chairperson said during its October meeting.

Several projects that chairperson Rae Schwartz said the committee could be effective in supporting include:

• The developing Crestview community theatre troupe formed by a group from the Journey Java Connection coffee shop

• The Friends of the Arts organization’s performing arts events held as fundraisers to maintain the Warriors Hall grand piano it acquired for the city

• An effort to bring a performance by the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra to Warriors Hall 

• A discussed downtown arts and crafts festival, possibly in conjunction with the Main Street Crestview Association and area restaurants

• An international food and culture festival representing the diverse nations and cultures represented in the Crestview area
