It Continues to be a Busy 2014 for GBCA and Our Regional Partners

It continues to be a busy 2014 for GBCA and our regional partners.  February is Dance Month at our member organizations The Gordon Center and UMBC with the first-ever Baltimore County Dance Celebration, Take a Leap.  This month-long event is presented by theBaltimore County Commission on Arts & Sciences and features over 25 events including a debut work fromCompany E by Italian choreographer Walter Matteini, commissioned for the company’s Baltimore County performance.
The first round of applications for The Rubys: Artist Project Grants closed on Sunday and we are off to a stellar start.  The adjudication process is underway and grantees in the areas of Media and Performing Arts will be announced in April.  Our friends in Visual and Literary Arts should be sharpening their pencils to apply for grants beginning on May 1.  We can’t wait to read about your amazing ideas.
Work continues on the redevelopment of, the region’s most comprehensive online arts and culture calendar.  Testing will begin in the next few months with the rollout of the new calendar (with a new name) to come in early June.  GBCA is also redesigning its website and beefing up services and information available online.
With all the amazing things happening around the area and at GBCA, it’s time for me to make my pitch for membership.  As we move into a new phase of service delivery and advocacy, let’s work together to support our incredible arts and culture sector.  You can check out member benefits and levels on our website.
All the best,
