COMMUNICATIONS committee

 

 

 

 

 

 

How can I help?

You can write articles to the Art Exchange newsletter, submit events and happenings/research content for the Art Express e-newsletter, help update posts on social media, currently we are especially looking for someone to write articles on current events/trends and issues to submit to the EDMn publication and help with website tasks.  Even just an article or two a year is helpful for either publication!
