Arts Council Associates

Arts Council Associates are a group of local artists and representatives of nonprofit arts and cultural organizations interested in mutual support, collaboration, and promoting arts events and programs. We meet every other month for skillshare and networking.

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