Arts Council Associates

SCCAFAE_logo_2015Arts Council Associates are a group of local artists and representatives of nonprofit arts and cultural organizations interested in mutual support, collaboration, and the promotion of arts events and programs. We meet every other month to chat, network, and catch-up, but also to share our challenges and triumphs, and figure out where partnerships can strengthen our community. They also co-produce the Gail Rich Awards, which celebrates local creatives and philanthropists who enrich our artistic community.

Connect with the Associates Facebook group. Share events, professional development opportunities, arts advocacy info, and other news, tips, questions and inspirations.
