Provide the Crucial Piece of Our Artist-In-Residence Programs

Support the Lincoln Arts CouncilThe artist-in-residence program provides unique first-time arts experiences to the children of our community. A crucial piece of our residencies comes from the AmeriCorps program, which provides community service for nonprofit organizations. AmeriCorps members gain skills and experience, and the chance to do professional work in an apprenticeship environment. Without the assistance of AmeriCorps, we'd be missing a vital piece of our workforce, and these residencies would not be possible.

Our Artist-In-Residence fund drive provides essential support to the residencies. Every dollar you donate in this campaign results in $5 of additional support to continue and enrich our AmeriCorps staffing. Help provide the key piece of the artist residencies, and together we can provide arts experiences that help our children reach their full potential!
