The Annapolis Arts Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to all the arts in Annapolis, Maryland and the surrounding neighborhoods. Whether you are a professional or amateur artist, a patron of the arts, a visitor or a resident in our capital city, the creative arts enrich our lives. The goal of the AAA is to provide one collective voice for anyone interested in or touched by arts.
Annapolis Arts Alliance Statement of Purpose:
The purpose of the Annapolis Arts Alliance, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is to provide a collective voice and forum and to support all members of our arts community, and offer opportunities to network, collaborate, polish creative skills, and showcase the rich artistic life of the Greater Annapolis Area. The Alliance engages in community outreach by supporting resource identification, information dissemination, arts education, and events programming.
The Annapolis Arts Alliance had its beginnings in 2003 when Mayor Ellen Moyer extended an invitation to a diverse group of locals involved in the arts community. She cast her net wide into the artistic world, bringing together representatives from visual arts, dance, music, theater, written word and the business community surrounding the arts.
A self-selected interim Board of Directors started meeting on October 14, 2003. Since then, the Annapolis Arts Alliance has incorporated and received non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
