4A American Alliance of Artists and Audiences (4A Arts) is a national membership organization that will build a nationwide network to increase participation in the arts, humanities, sciences, arts education, and cultural advocacy across America.
Web Platform: 4A Arts is building a robust web platform to showcase all disciplines of arts and culture across America. Our web platform will feature arts and cultural listings including performances, exhibitions, and events as well as arts education and cultural advocacy activities.
Through our web platform, email newsletters, and online communications, we will encourage participation in the wide variety of arts, humanities, science, cultural advocacy, and arts education activities that make up the vibrant culture of America. 4A Arts will help creators, presenters, educators, and advocates achieve their goals by sharing their work and magnifying its value.
Partners: 4A Arts has begun assembling a national network of partners which will include arts, humanities, and science-based nonprofit organizations, arts presenters, arts education providers, and cultural advocacy and service organizations. 4A Arts partners will have the ability to post about their organization, events, and advocacy activities on the 4A Arts website for free and will be encouraged to provide benefits to 4A Arts members such as:
Discounts on admission, performances, events, and arts education activities
Special access to behind the scenes events, discussions, and tours
Resources for creative and professional development
Information about the ways to engage in culture and the arts across America
Members: 4A Arts members will pay a low annual fee to access discounts and other benefits from national, regional, and local partners, to receive tailored event and advocacy alerts, and to be part of a national creative community.
4A Arts will build an expansive network by unifying the creative community in America. As 4A Arts’ membership grows, so will awareness that the arts, humanities, and sciences have a measurable and inherent value in American society.
4A Arts is working toward the launch of our web platform and member program. We are currently recruiting partners and future members.
There are millions of people across the United States who care about the arts - people who span political, gender, racial, economic, generational, and other divides. 4A Arts intends to bring together individuals and organizations who care about the arts to ensure that creativity, the arts, and arts education are cherished and supported throughout the nation!
