Haller Lake Arts Council::Non-Profit Organization Seeking a Board Member/Volunteer

16 Mar

This is a Board position on the arts council. The Literary Arts Committee helps plan any literary arts activities and events. This committee maintains the Literary Artists portion of the Artists Directory, which includes but not limited to writers of fiction, literary non-fiction, poetry, screenplays, stage plays, and TV scripts. The chair of this committee is free to shape the direction that this committee could go. Attendance of the Haller Lake Arts Council’s monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of most every month would be mandatory.

What is the Haller Lake Arts Council?
The Haller Lake Arts Council seeks to bring local artists and the community together for the benefit of all. Our goal is to encourage artistic endeavors in applied arts, fiber & needle arts, fine & visual arts, literary arts, and performing arts for the pleasure they bring the creator as well as the beholder. Our role is to expose the general community to the wonderful art that exists within our midst. The community and artists of north Seattle will be our main focus, while providing enjoyable and accessible experiences for all ages.

We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) all volunteer organization. We have use of the Haller Lake Community Club building in north Seattle and our activities are based there. Our current projects are: (1) “Arts Live! 2nd Saturdays at the club” is envisioned as a night for the arts that could feature anything from Performing Arts, Independent Films, Poetry Readings, and Arts Lectures designed to bring the arts and the community together for the benefit of all. The evenings provide all with another way of experiencing community. Individual, business and corporate sponsorship are welcome. (2) A North Seattle & Shoreline Studio Tour planned for May 9 & 10, 2009. (3) “Concerts For Kids” is in the planning stages and is scheduled to begin in October 2009. (4) Northgate Elementary School was the recipient of the first “Art in Our Schools” program of the Haller Lake Arts Council in March 2008. Special art sessions for 4 classes at Northgate Elementary for five weeks were made possible by grants from the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs of the City of Seattle and the Haller Lake Arts Council. As the arts council grows we hope to be able to increase the amount we are able to give to this worthwhile program. (5) We maintain a current and active web site with information for our community.
