Review for Arts Council Of Windham County Inc, Brattleboro, VT, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC) is Brattleboro's arts hub. The Council helps put artists, musicians, photographers, performers in touch with people and resources they need to make artistic connections in Windham County. The mission of the Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC) is to “To strengthen the environment for artists and arts organizations in Windham County”. They are working on an interactive calendar promoting upcoming activities, links to Artists, working with the Brattleboro Museum and Art Gallery and the Chamber of Commerce.

Make sure that it got greater recognition as it is the link between the artist and the community; that it is the draw for each Gallery Walk Friday where over 30 retail establishments show local art; that the Arts Council of Windham County tries to make a difference in the lives of the residents of Brattleboro by being the fiscal umbrella for fledging non-profit arts groups.

Role:  Board Member & As a Board Member, Treasurer, I helped with distributing grants, reaching out to donors and thanking the donors.
