Atlantic Center for the Arts National Council guides the artistic direction of ACA. It is comprised of up to 20 artists and arts administrators representing the various disciplines. The members serve an unpaid three-year renewable term, and are selected by recommendations from current and past members, former Mentoring Artists, and staff.
Mentoring Artists are recommended by current and emeritus National Council members. The National Council meets annually to evaluate the past year’s programs, to preview the coming year’s agenda, and to discuss potential Mentoring Artists. The members are available to Atlantic Center for the Arts programming staff for consultations throughout the year.
