We are currently seeking people to work with ACAC, including one possible Commissioner-level role.
The Arlington Commission for Arts & Culture seeks residents, business owners and nonprofit leaders who are passionate about the arts. Bringing together several previously separate cultural entities including Arlington Cultural Council, Arlington Public Art, Artlinks, and Poet Laureate, ACAC promotes and develops arts and culture programs, events, andresources, in order to create a sustainable and vibrant arts scene that engages and attracts artists, residents, businesses and visitors.  ACAC generally meets one evening each month, as well as in periodic subcommittee meetings around such activities as grant-making, fundraising, public art installations, performance programs and festivals, artist networking and development, destination marketing and communications, and Arlington Cultural District planning. ACAC especially seeks both Commissioners and subcommittee members willing to volunteer their skills in the areas of fundraising and development, grant-making, digital media or marketing. ACAC strives to expand access to and promote cultural equity in the arts, and to have Committee membership reflecting the diversity of our town.
