Become a part of our growing community!
In partnership with More Canvas Consulting, we are creating a tailored database of arts creators, administrators, and supporters to facilitate collaboration and community.
Sign up below to be a part of growing this resource and gain access to the database once it is live. (Survey is being finalized; database launch Dec. 1)
Share your time, expertise, or funds with fellow alumni to support a sustainable arts landscape after graduation.
Share Your Time:
Volunteer as an ArtHost and provide a way for alumni to consume art together with discussion and companionship.
Pick any arts event you’d like to attend (alum-related or not) and a spot to gather for conversation afterwards. We’ll share the date and time with the network, and you be the ArtHost!
Share Your Expertise:
Let us know if you are willing to speak on a panel, run a workshop, provide mentorship, an apprenticeship, let an alum or student shadow you, give pro bono services, be on our advisory board, etc. We’ll be in touch.
Share Your Funds:
Contribute to the growth of the Princeton Arts Alumni and its offerings. The organization is run by volunteers and is financially independent from the University.
We are building more formal governance structures, aiming to expand to regional hubs, and working to increase our exposure, engagement, and support for alumni who are in the arts and for the arts. Every tax-deductible** donation is greatly appreciated.
The Princeton Arts Alumni Presenting Fund: Events such as the Annual Alumni Cabaret require space and production support. Let’s build a larger platform for the presentation of alumni art by presenting fringe festivals, art fairs, music festivals and more.
Creating opportunities for alumni art to be exhibited to the public; building bridges for collaboration and patronage.
Knowledge-Sharing Programs: This year Princeton Arts Alumni is creating knowledge-sharing programs to bring together alumni to address questions, obstacles, solutions, and experiences related to creating, managing, consuming, and supporting art. Help expand this important area by contributing space, materials, refreshments, or funds to procure them.
Annual Operating Costs: While the organization is run by volunteers with low overhead (no physical office), there are digital resources and professional services required to ensure proper management.
