Northwest New Mexico Arts Council was formed to sponsor and encourage
cultural and educational activities in Northwest New Mexico. The
Council sponsors cooperative planning, research, fund raising,
and public education programs, administers property, and undertakes
such other services and programs deemed necessary to encourage
participation and appreciation of arts by all citizens in the
area. Overall organizational development
and growth is a current target of the organization, rather than
the current trend of proceeding on a project-by-project basis.
Art shows and performances are the present project focus.
The Northwest New Mexico Arts Council is a supporter and advocate for the visual, literary and performing arts in Northwest New Mexico. It will seek to establish partnerships and collaborations to develop, support and provide arts education that will enhance the appreciation of all visual, literary and performing arts within the region. The N.W.N.M.A.C. recognizes the diversity of all cultures that contribute to the arts, and will support all traditions and art forms equally and enthusiastically. Recognizes the importance of downtown revitalization and establishes integration and the diversity of all cultures, including special needs and arts in afterschool. Encourages creativity and new technology trends that inspire and enhance STEM and STEAM projects.
Be A Part of the new Handmade Guide
Apart from being the first comprehensive guide to the creative community of Four Corners, “Handmade” is unique among free gallery guides. Most focus on galleries, venues, and events, but our focus is the many talented individuals living and working in the Four Corners. We have expanded on the usual visual art content of gallery guides to include any creative person offering a product or service that contributes to the cultural life of the Four Corners. It includes, fine artists, artisans, crafters, musicians, dancers, writers, filmmakers, etc. Our goal is to raise the awareness of the general population to what we in the creative community have known all along, you don’t have to leave San Juan County for culture. We will be printing at least 5,000 books for distribution through the 2016-2017 fiscal year. Final Deadline: March 17, 2017
