Community culture is the shared meaning and standards of behavior that emerge in a place. This occurs at the scale of a neighborhood, town or city and coexists with other types of culture such as national culture, subculture and superculture.

How does culture relate to community?

Culture shapes identities and fosters notions of community by defining how individuals and groups relate to one another, how meaning is created, and how power is defined. Furthermore, culture provides a context for ideas about partnership, trust, and negotiation.

Why is community culture important?

In addition to its intrinsic value, culture provides important social and economic benefits. With improved learning and health, increased tolerance, and opportunities to come together with others, culture enhances our quality of life and increases overall well-being for both individuals and communities.
