County arts alliance seeking volunteers

Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking up to four citizen volunteers interested in serving on the Clackamas County Arts Alliance Advisory Council for terms ranging from two to three years.

Those with interest and experience in non-visual arts are particularly invited to apply, although all qualified applicants will be considered.

Advisory Council members should have a strong interest and history of participation in arts and cultural activities and are normally actively engaged with their own communities. Members monitor local arts and culture issues and are information conduits, offering resources to guide Arts Alliance policy and program decisions.

The Alliance Advisory Council meets quarterly from 3-5 p.m. on third Thursdays in March, June, September and December. The June and September meetings are hosted in various communities as "listening opportunities." Council members are expected to rotate service as community hosts and to attend all meetings.

The Arts Alliance also supports local arts organizations, artists in all disciplines, youth at risk, business partners, and civic and community leaders with information, resources, training, coaching, public art and capacity-building services.

Current Arts Alliance services include arts industry support, youth-at-risk programming, web-based news & opportunity bulletins, skill-building and training workshops for cultural organizations and creative practitioners, public art process management.

Programs and services are managed by five part-time staff working collaboratively with the advisory council, board of directors and other volunteers.

Interested individuals must complete an online application: clackamas.us/miscapp/application.jsp. For more information or an alternate paper application, contact Clackamas County Public and Government Affairs at 503-742-4353.
