The Ambassadors Program
ARA Ambassadors are an essential component of the ARA Alliance concept, Composed from a team of art practitioners who take a leading role in their locality via the ARA platform.
We believe that an ongoing debate and an exchange of ideas between grassroots cultural community leaders from diverse cultural backgrounds will promote the kind of inclusive, respectful, professional and visionary discourse the ARA project wants to affirm.
The Ambassadors are specialists, volunteering to strengthen the artist-run field in two essential key-points:
– Mapping the changes taking place in their cultural environment such as the opening of new initiatives, thus keeping the ARA map an accurate depiction of their locality.
– Facilitating awareness to local challenges and needs – and helping the ARA IT team respond to these needs in the broader context of the platform.
