Empowering artists and organizations is directly in line with the Art Council’s mission to encourage and invest in the arts and historic preservation of Anne Arundel County.   Throughout the year we fund several training workshops, sponsor marketing opportunities and host networking events for our grantees and artists.

Workshops: The workshops are meant to equip artists and organizations with the knowledge, skills, and tools to increase their audiences and financial stability.  Past workshops have included topics such as developing internships, social media, grant writing and training in advertising.  Our workshops are held at various locations throughout the county and are facilitated by experts such as Vince Connelly, Tony Teano and Herman Advertising, who give leading industry advice and direction.

Networking Receptions: Collaborations and partnering between artists and the many arts organizations is important to nurturing the feeling of community throughout the county.  The receptions hosted by the Arts Council give our grantees the opportunity to socialize and nurture relationships that result in collaborative festivals and events in Anne Arundel County.
