For the past 15 years, the Arts & Cultural Alliance of Jackson County (ACAJC) has supported the creative sector in Jackson by offering artists and creatives paid memberships.In an effort to bring our services to more people, the ACAJC Board has decided to discontinue paid memberships, and to continue on with the support of donations, so that we can offer our services to all artists and creatives living and working in Jackson County.We appreciate and value the artists and creatives who have been dues-paying members over the years, and we will continue to provide support and advocacy for the arts across the county.Individuals interested in being a booster for the arts are encouraged to make a tax-deductible donation to the Arts & Cultural Alliance of Jackson County. We hope you will participate in future Outreach Committee meetings to help us learn how to advocate and support the arts in our community.Outreach Committee meetings are held on the fourth Monday of every month at 6 p.m. at varying locations. If you would like to share ideas with the creative sector in Jackson, please attend the Outreach Committee meetings.To receive updates, including the location of the Outreach Committee every month, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
