SJC Arts Council welcomes new members | Guest column
From the seeds planted over two years ago, in the minds of a few, the idea of a San Juan County Arts Council has evolved into a burgeoning organization comprised of almost 150 members, plus an enthusiastic and organized steering committee, equally represented by three out of four ferry-served islands (Shaw, we know youʼll be on board soon).
This steering committee meets monthly and is in the process of establishing a business plan. Why all the excitement?
Well, we believe that the San Juans are just a wonderful place to create and to see art of every kind. A tremendous opportunity exists to attract both artists and the tourists who enjoy their work.
We see this as an economic “incoming tide” for our community, that can help to launch, in a substantial way, our economic “boats”.
If this concept of an Arts Council excites you, or even if you think itʼs just a darn good idea, we would love you to join us and become a member of this forward-thinking group. There is no cost involved. Membership is free.
All you have to do is agree with our mission and vision statements (below).
For more information, or to become a member, please send an email to:sanujuanartscouncil.org
We offer our abundant enthusiasm in the form of monthly updates on a number of projects which we believe will benefit our island community in very positive ways, and, of course, we are always happy to have your suggestions and comments. We hope this floats your boat, too, and that we can navigate the waters of the future together and sail on with a full crew.
