The recently-formed Tigard Arts Council is open to people who are interested in helping promote the arts in and around Tigard.
The council, which was formed with support from the Tigard Downtown Alliance and the Tigard Chamber of Commerce, will meet again at 9am on Tuesday, January 15 at the Tigard Chamber meeting room above Symposium Coffee on Tigard Main Street.
Currently the council includes representatives from a variety of interests including Artisans of Metal and Thread, Broadway Rose, the City of Tigard, Mask & Mirror Community Theatre, Representative Margaret Doherty’s office, The Tigard Chamber of Commerce, The Tigard Downtown Alliance, and Tualatin Valley Creates.
Topics the council will continue to discuss include how to infuse arts into existing annual Tigard events, using art as a strategy to promote economic development and cultural tourism in Tigard, and using the arts to facilitate placemaking in Tigard.
People interested in getting involved are encouraged to contact Loni Sanders with the Tigard Chamber for more information: Loni@tigardchamber.org.
