The Greater Derry Arts Council 

About Us

The Greater Derry Arts Council is a New Hampshire non-profit corporation dedicated to fostering the arts in the communities that we serve: Derry and the immediately surrounding towns. 

Would you be willing to support us?

Our Membership and Sponsorship offerings may be of interest to you.  Arts organizations nation-wide rely on memberships, subscriptions and donations for up to a third of their annual operating income.  With recent increases in the costs of fuel oil and electricity, the Arts Council needs to rely on the financial support of our community to help make ends meet.  Please consider making a donation today.

Would you be interested in volunteering?

We really could use your help.  Would you consider becoming an Arts Council Volunteer?  Please look at our Committees and see if there is an area in which you'd like to participate. Please review our Organizational Structure, to see how we operate.  Please review our Services that we provide to the public.  Please contact us if you are interested or just have questions. 

If the arts are at all important to you, please help.  Without new volunteers, the Arts Council cannot fulfill its diverse mission to the communities we serve.  We can't afford paid staff.  Please don't assume that "someone else" will step forward.  We need everyone who values the arts, in any form, to lend a hand.

How can we assist you?

If you are a local area artist, we'd like to hear from you. We occasionally get requests from organizations for referrals of local artists, in various disciplines, for local projects or programs. Would you like to join our modest Artists Roster? Click for a roster registration form.

We are also looking for people to work on our various events.  Contact us for more information.  

Do you have arts event information to share?

If you have information regarding local artistic, cultural or civic events that you would like us to post on our Local-Info page, please contact us.  Please visit our Announcements page, for a listing of arts related happenings in the area, and our Events page for Arts Council sponsored events.

If you would like us to add your [favorite] organization's web site to our list of arts-related and otherwise locally-relevant links, please contact us.
