Waco Arts Alliance is a networking group for arts leaders. It exists to bring together people who think, dream, plan, and do the hard work of creating the artistic and cultural life of Waco. The group is open to anyone who runs an artistic or cultural event, organization or program (non profit or commercial). Regular meetings provide opportunities for professional development, information exchange and coordination of marketing, fundraising and programming.
By working together, Waco’s artistic and cultural organizations can grow audiences, promote one another, and communicate the importance of the arts in Waco.
To join the Arts Alliance, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your organization, project or event and your title, and we'll add you to our email list and database. Also join the Arts Alliance Facebook group to exchange information and updates with other members.
