What is the Advocates Circle? (Members are listed with ** below) 

The Community Arts Partnership has a proud history of administering quality programing and the time is right for this organization to do more. There are currently new opportunities, partnerships and collaborations being developed - and that's why we created the Advocates Circle.

Becoming a member of the Advocates Circle requires a pledge of (a minimum of) $300 a year for three years. Recently 20 of our friends and neighbors stepped forward to make such a pledge!

We invite you to become part of the Circle, thereby providing CAP with the resources needed to take on these important additional responsibilities: 

  • Working with local, state and national representatives to advocate effectively for Tompkins County's cultural institutions and opportunities.

  • Bring stakeholders together to define areas of mutual interest and develop clear messages and methods to advance those interests with a unified voice.  

  • Enrich local arts and cultural programs and projects through research and the development of sources of significant support from outside of Tompkins County.   

Benefits provided Advocacy Members include:

  • a members-only introduction to their exciting new photography program at the Johnson Museum of Art, 

  • kickoff "first dibs" reception for our annual CAP-a-Palooza Art Sale Extraordinaire, 

  • a voucher through CAP for 20% off regular priced tickets for the Hangar Theatre Company's inaugural Holiday Production of Charles Dicken’s "A Christmas Carol"

  • a "sneak peek" at a KitchenTheatre main stage production before it reaches the general public

Thank you to our wonderful 2017 supporters
