Inspiring people of all ages...

community outreach at Parade the Circle

With the goal of engaging and enriching local residents and organizations, Heights Arts provides arts outreach at community events, outdoor festivals, and organizes collaborative community programs such as Community Partner Appreciation Nights (2018), Make Your Mark for the Arts (2014), Here and There, Now and Then (2015), and Pet Project (ongoing). See EVENTS for currently scheduled outreach activities.

Interested in being a community arts ambassador at neighborhood festivals? We are always looking for passionate volunteers to share our love for the arts! If you would like to commit your expertise in one of our programming areas of the Literary, Musical or Visual arts, see below to learn more about one of our Volunteer Community Teams.


Random Acts of Art

The Heights Arts “Random Acts of Art” project is an opportunity to showcase the work of artists, musicians and poets in Cuyahoga County. Using social media and our website, Heights Arts will present the submitted work in digital format beginning in April 2020. We will share both our Heights Arts programming and also accept and host artists’ digital images and videos or at-home or at-studio visits, and will consider any relevant type of work that can be shared through our channels.

Both professional artists, musicians / Composers and Poets can submit work through our submission form here.

Volunteer Community Teams

Heights Arts has a long history of inviting the community to share their passion and expertise to help the Organization develop and present its public programming. Three ongoing Volunteer Community Teams are charged with facilitating the strategies and action plans for Heights Arts core programming in our three areas of literary, musical and visual arts programming.

Creative Community Partnerships

Here at Heights Arts, partnership and community is what we are all about. We actively seek meaningful relationships with other organizations to strengthen the greater community. We are currently partnering with local animal welfare organizations through our Pet Project, and sharing membership benefits like store discounts with other organizations who share our mission to support artists. Who benefits? Everyone! We hope you agree and take advantage of the opportunities we provide.
