2. Join or Start a Committee

We’d love to grow our coverage of the arts. We are hoping to do this by expanding and reinforcing our committees. If you have a talent or particular creative interest that you would like to share with our community, you may want to consider leading a committee on our council. A committee could range from a watercolor committee to a photography committee. The options are endless! Here’s your opportunity to grow your network of artists and expand your passions.

A committee lead would:

  • Help create a team of committee members
  • Lead your team on planning events for the community around your committee’s focus
  • Expected to attend our monthly committee meeting* and consult with chair and vice-chair board members, as needed.
  • Estimated time commitment per month for leading a committee: 2-5 hours plus any additional time needed for events your committee is hosting

If you are interested in further exploring this idea, please contact Rach Whittekiend at vicechair@millcreekartscouncil.org
