TakePartInArt.org is provided as a service to the community by the nonprofit umbrella funding organization ArtsFund and the project donors listed below. As the primary point of connection between cultural activity and this region’s residents and visitors, the site includes event information from more than 200 King and Pierce County nonprofit arts groups.
The site was initially developed by the all-volunteer organization the Arts Coalition which asked ArtsFund to assume ownership and on-going management of the site to maximize its potential. It was first funded by an Anne V. Farrell Leadership grant from The Seattle Foundation to build awareness of and support for the arts in this region. The site’s launch was also supported by extensive in-kind contributions from a number of media companies.
With generous support from the donors listed below, TakePartInArt.org has finished design work for a complete revamp of the site to add on-line ticket sales, professional and user reviews, user profiles, social networking and other features.
When ArtsFund secures support for implementing those changes, TakePartInArt.org will be one of the most comprehensive, convenient and engaging websites in the country dedicated to connecting the public to nonprofit arts activity. Your help is welcome; please contact ArtsFund at 206.281.9050 if you’re interested in supporting development of this web site with a tax-deductible gift.
Founded in 1969, ArtsFund is the largest private, nonprofit arts funding organization in the Northwest. It annually makes operating-fund grants to some 70 nonprofit arts groups in King and Pierce Counties. It also is a leader and effective advocate in ensuring that the region is well served by a strong cultural life. Please visit www.artsfund.org.
