JCCC seeks applications for Community Arts Partners

Johnson County Community College’s Performing Arts Series is reviving the college’s Community Arts Partners program. Between Jan. 1 and Feb. 15, 2011, the college will accept applications from organizations wishing to become Community Arts Partners for the 2011-2012 academic year.

The partnerships help nonprofit community organizations present programming in the college’s performing arts spaces. For partners, the rental fee is waived for Yardley Hall, Polsky Theatre or Recital Hall for one day 8 a.m. to midnight on a space-available basis.

Potential community arts partners must be not-for-profit 501c3 organizations, but not necessarily performing arts groups. Johnson County groups receive preferential consideration. Benefits or fundraising activities are not eligible.

“At JCCC, community is our middle name,” said Emily Behrmann, general manager, Performing Arts Series. “We’re proud to support local organizations by providing access to a professional performance space in which they can showcase their talents and abilities.”

Community Arts Partnership applications are available from Performing Arts office; call 913-469-4450 to request one or pick one up on campus in room 105 in the Carlsen Center. Applications are also available online.

Return completed applications to Behrmann in the Performing Arts office or mail them to her at box 14, 12345 College Blvd., Overland Park, Kan. 66210.
