Tell Americans for the Arts about arts service in your community
Americans for the Arts invites Americans to post arts volunteer stories on their new website serve.artsusa.org, dedicated to promoting community service opportunities for arts groups, arts volunteers, activists, and artists nationwide. Inspired by President Obama's United We Serve initiative, serve.artsusa.org provides a forum for volunteers and arts organizations to share volunteer stories and to upload related photos and videos. "[We] know that the arts have the power to engage and strengthen communities, and that volunteerism in the arts deserves more attention and support," notes an email invitation from Americans for the Arts to its members. "The personal and professional arts volunteer stories you share will be compiled with related videos and pictures and then shared with the White House, Congress, and the media."
