Waco Arts Alliance is a networking group for arts leaders. It exists to bring together people who think, dream, plan, and do the hard work of creating the artistic and cultural life of Waco. The group is open to anyone who runs an artistic or cultural event, organization or program (non-profit, community, or commercial). Meetings are your chance to meet the movers and shakers of Waco’s arts scene, hear the latest news, exchange information, coordinate marketing, fundraising and programming.

By working together, Waco’s artistic and cultural organizations can grow audiences, promote one another, and communicate the importance of the arts in Waco.

To join the Arts Alliance, message us at [email protected] with the name of your organization, project or event and your title, and we'll add you to our email list and database. Also join the Arts Alliance Facebook group to exchange information and updates with other members.

Dear Waco Arts Alliance,

Thanks to YOU - our intrepid leaders of arts organizations and programs, the arts / craft / music / theatre / dance / film / poetry / gallery / festival / event scene in Waco is alive and thriving! But we know it can be tough - sometimes you need to connect with your fellow arts leaders to stay sane, and to remember that others are sharing the load and cheering you on! This year's Arts Alliance meetings will be focused on providing resoruce on continuing to re-emerge after the pandemic, adapt with the changing circumstances, and keep you informed of changes and opportunities. We will also continue conversations about our community's need for new downtown performing and visual arts facilities. In all this, your voice matters. We can't wait to hear your ideas.

Please continue to post news, announcements, questions, ideas, requests, resources and comments on the Arts Alliance Facebook Page.

And don't forget to check out the RESOURCES on this site, such as FUNDING, CALENDARS, the CREATIVE DIRECTORY, and DATA on the economic impact of the arts in Waco.
