Department of Cultural Resources

New Hampshire’s Department of Cultural Resources includes the State Council on the Arts, the Division of Film and Digital Media, the Division of Historical Resources and the State Library. The Commission on Native American Affairs is administratively attached.

The Department strives to nurture the cultural well-being of our state. From the covered bridges and traditional music of our past to the avant garde performances and technological resources of today and tomorrow, New Hampshire’s culture is as varied as its geography and its people. This strong cultural base—which truly has something for everyone—attracts businesses looking for engaged workforces, provides outstanding educational opportunities and creates communities worth living in.
