In 2017 the National Arts Council (NAC) celebrates 20 years since it was instituted, and over the years we have seen how the local creative community has come together to form a dynamic industry.
In this, the NAC has been a key role player that has firmly committed to its mission of developing and promoting excellence in the arts. However, we realise that to fulfil our mandate, we cannot solely focus on grant awarding but need to also leverage strategic partnerships and resources to offer not only our beneficiaries, but the wider arts community value adding services that will develop, support, promote and advance the arts.
One of these strategic partnerships we’re embarking on is with our past beneficiaries. With that said we are developing our very own alumni community and are calling on all arts organisations and individuals who have received support, financial or otherwise, from the NAC to be a part of this dynamic community.
This community will serve as a platform to pay it forward through the sharing of knowledge, experiences and opportunities that will benefit the wider arts community.
We would be honoured if you would be part of our valued alumni community and help drive the development and promotion of the arts to encourage excellence.
To join our alumni group please email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch with the next steps.
Looking forward to your participation.

Chief Executive Officer
