Membership is the backbone of the Orange County Arts Council. It unites us in the common goal of ensuring that the arts continue to flourish, are properly supported and are seen as a critical part of the quality of life we enjoy here in Orange County. When you become a member, you join with people and organizations who believe that the arts are an economic development engine for the county, a critical component of our children’s education, a tourism driver, a tool for community revitalization, and an important part of the Orange County business community as well. You are also supporting the Council’s mission to champion the arts, connect artists and audiences, and foster the growth of the county’s creative resources.
“If you’re thinking about joining, don’t hesitate. For artists it is a necessity so that you are not working in a vacuum and can express your art to more people. For the public, creators create for you, and when you’re a member you get to have more choices of how to participate and be a part of it all.” – Barry Plaxen, Publisher D&H CANVAS Newspaper
