Future Business Leaders getting connected with Arts & Culture - August 22, 2013

Get connected with arts and culture with Business for Culture & the Arts’ (BCA) newest program, BCA’s Associates!

 

With a vision to engage every business with the arts, BCA works to strengthen Oregon’s culture and economy. BCA’s Associate program is geared for 21-40 year olds who are employed in the greater Portland area and have expressed interest in the arts. The program breaks the group up in teams of 8-12 and will be assisted by an “arts guide” from Portland Emerging Arts Leaders that will expose the team to art experiences, cultural events, and engage them with artists and cultural organizations throughout the city.

 

If selected for the program, members pay a $65 fee – of which $30 will go to the Work for Art program, which supportsPortland’s incredible art community, The contribution entitles BCA Associate members to an “ArtCard,” which offers you a pair of 2-for-1 tickets to hundreds of art events around the city!
