Our valued members — who represent a broad range of artistic disciplines, budget sizes, and geographic regions — are the backbone of Arts Alliance Illinois. As part of the largest and most interconnected, state-level arts advocacy network in the country, Alliance members help us ensure the health, vitality, and vibrancy of arts communities across Illinois, and that the arts remain present and positioned to change the lives of all Illinois residents.

Member Organizations are 501(c)(3) nonprofits or other tax-exempt entities whose dues are determined by annual budget. Enterprise Partners are corporations, LLCs, and other for-profit entities in the creative industries whose dues are determined by the number of paid employees.
