Organizations and Artists
Arts and cultural organizations, presenters, educators, advocates, service organizations, and individual artists – we want to help you achieve your goals by sharing your work and magnifying its value. Post your events, education programs, and advocacy activities on our site for free! Check out our Advanced Search to see the filters that can be used to find your events.
Please consider offering discounts or other benefits to 4A Arts members. Events and profile pages with discounts show up in discount searches and incentivize members to buy tickets. Your discounts will also help us to build a national community of users and members, which will in turn help to build audiences for your programming and for arts and culture across the country. Get started here.
Members and Users
All site visitors can search our national listings for events, education, and advocacy from all disciplines of arts and culture.
Individuals can become 4A Arts members by paying a $25 annual fee to gain access to discounts and benefits from many organizations and artists that post on 4AArts.org and to set up custom email alerts for saved searches and favorites. We offer a discount rate of $20 for members of organizations that post on our site. For a limited time we are offering our initial members 18 month memberships for the price of one year.
4A Arts is funded by contributions and membership fees, which are vital for us to maintain this web platform, expand this information resource, provide free access to search features, and reach out to encourage new artists and organizations to post on our site. Learn more about membership.
We want to become a centralized resource for arts and cultural programming by artists and organizations of all sizes from all disciplines across the country. By showcasing all disciplines, we hope to encourage audiences to discover and explore new types of programming. We intend to feature education and advocacy initiatives on the same platform as other arts and cultural events, in order to raise awareness of critical connection among education, advocacy, and arts and cultural programming. As our membership grows, we will work through advocacy organizations to develop strategies to engage our members in their ongoing work, in order to elevate the social, economic, and political perception of arts and culture.
4A Arts is enormously grateful to its founding sponsor, J. Sebastian Scripps, whose support has enabled the development and implementation of this platform.
