2016 Membership Program Updates

As of January 1, 2016 Arts Council Wood Buffalo is updating its Membership Program benefits and fees. Over the past two years, ACWB has worked diligently to expand its membership benefits. Currently, members receive: monthly updates on opportunities for artists in the community; discounts on workshops and courses; exclusive access to the artists’ directory on the ACWB website; access to advisory and consultative services; Online promotion through ACWB social media and website; print promotion through the weekly YMMArts Column in the Fort McMurray Today; and, connection to a community of professional and emerging artists.

The estimated value is over $500 depending on the benefits you chose to take advantage of.

Beginning in 2016, ACWB is adding two new benefits for members: A Local Arts Business Discount Program and a Snapd Wood Buffalo Arts Feature. More details on these programs will be coming in January.

Arts Council Wood Buffalo will also be adjusting its membership fees in 2016 to better reflect the value of the programs and services provided by ACWB.
