The Black Arts Action Committee is a paid council of Black leaders, arts professionals, and artists that serve as a resource and guide to create more equitable opportunities to advance the careers of Black artists and arts organizations in the region.
The committee meets independently to discuss the needs of the Black arts community and how the Arts Council and other partners can provide better resources. We're grateful for their involvement and support.
The Black Arts Action Committee is supported by the Arts, Equity, & Education Fund.

The committee is recruiting two members to complete the committee's roles. We are looking for someone to provide a youth arts perspective, ideally someone who is between the ages of 16-20 with a parent/guardian's permission who is comfortable working with adults. The committee is also seeking the perspective of an elder in the arts community.
