In 2011, the Arts Council welcomed members to its Board of Directors under the leadership of a new board President. Careful evaluation of past practices were coupled with the development of an innovative approach to better serve Arts Council members and the Bucks County arts community.
An improved website and expanded Social Media presence helped the Arts Council expand. Currently, ongoing communication with our members through periodic newsletters, meaningful events, outreach, and community engagement helps build continued support for the organization.
Regularly scheduled networking events are integrated with meaningful arts-inspired programs for Arts Council members. The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County has served as a sponsor of the Doylestown Art Days, the Bristol Stroll in Lower Bucks County, the Bucks County Celebration of the Arts Weekend, the P.S. I Love You walking tour in Upper Bucks County, and the Bucks County Plein Air Festival. The ACCBC is also an active participant in the Doylestown Arts Festival and Giving Tuesday.
Our membership has significantly increased in recent months, and through the dedication and commitment of our ever-expanding Board of Directors and artist and community volunteers, it is anticipated that the Council will be integral to the development of a strong presence for artists in the Bucks County community for years to come.
