The Board plays a vital role in supporting a long-term vision for the company, while also engaging with staff and Resident Artists to support fundraising initiatives, company outreach, and marketing and publicity. As a governance board, Directors are collectively accountable for the oversight of the management of the activities and affairs of ARC. We are currently working to grow our Board of Directors–creating a more sustainable future for our company leadership at the Board level, and increasing our ability to access new communities of supporters and stakeholders.
