|CNY Arts Covenant Project|
TAKE PART IN ART.
What is the CNYAC?
The Arts Covenant is a movement in CNY that calls upon everyone to support the rich cultural and artistic life of our community by commiting to four simple actions each year.
The arts reflect our roots, our complex history. The arts contributes to the quality of life in our community and to our economic survival and development. We need everyone who lives here to help sustain this extraordinary cultural life. Now is a time to support your neighbors.
Commit to just four simple acts over a year’s time:
- Purchase three original works of art to honor the creative work of CNY artists.
- Attend at least one arts event from a culture other than your own to explore our community’s diversity
- Attend one event in an art form you don’t usually choose.
- Get involved. Support an arts institution you haven’t supported before. For example: volunteer, take an arts course, join a story circle, a dance company or a chorus, become a sponsor or underwriter.
YOU decide how to keep your Arts Covenant agreement.
Sign-up for the Arts Covenant online or come to one of our events!
A covenant is more than a contract, stronger than a pact. It’s a deep, profound commitment among people who see themselves as a community seeking to support the Arts. A covenant expresses a community’s relationship with something higher, an aspect of our humanity that is more than the everyday. At the same time it helps us target where we spend our time and money.
Who’s behind the Arts Covenant?
An all volunteer working group called Art Across Boarders has formed and created the Arts Covenant. It’s members – artists, members of cultural institutions and arts allies work to promote the idea.
