The Woodlands Waterway Arts Council
In the spring of 2005, several community leaders in The Woodlands established The Woodlands Waterway Arts Council. The mission of The Woodlands Waterway Arts Council, Inc. is to provide regional cultural enrichment opportunities that encourage, support and promote the performing and visual arts. Its strategic priorities are to (1) present The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival and other community art events; (2) offer scholarships to aspiring young artists; (3) support performing and visual arts programs in the schools; and (4) develop partnerships with others to create a strong arts presence in the area. The Woodlands Waterway Arts Council is made up of members from The Woodlands Development Company, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, The Woodlands Township and additional community leaders interested in the arts.
Our Charity Partners include a diverse group of local organizations. Charity Partners provide the volunteer support that makes the festival run smoothly, from greeting patrons to teaching children art projects. For 2012--2014 they are: The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion Partners, The Woodlands Art League, The Woodlands Children's Museum, the Conroe Art League and the Ann Marie Hopkins Art Alliance.
