The Culture Concept Circle – About


At The Culture Concept Circle we are seeking to grow an appreciation for, and to celebrate, beautiful and thought- provoking works. We want to help expand knowledge of the arts both visual and performance, as well as the development of our social and cultural heritage.

Art, Design, Music, Fashion and Style reflect the very essence of our culture, its attitudes and philosophies, its fashions and passions.

The Culture Concept Circle has many FREE posts for you to choose from in many different categories of interest in both the visual and performance arts as we trace the evolution of our society and its cultural development.
