Membership

Become a member of the South Carolina Arts Alliance and join over 2,000 other Advocates raising their voice for the arts across the state.

Membership is a reciprocal relationship. We rely on our members to be active arts advocates, and in return we promise to deliver quality leadership opportunities, reliable information, and adequate advocacy resources.

Get your foot in the door with our FREE basic "Advocate" membership, but really make your voice heard with our $5/month "Lead Advocate" membership. If you're an arts organization or a creative business and want these perks for ALL of your employees, or want to sponsor the work of the SCAA, become a Creative Partner!

Big Impact. Big Perks.

Armed with insider knowledge and discounted (or free) leadership development opportunities through our CreativeSC program, our Lead Advocates are our star players when it comes to raising a voice for the arts at home and across the state, all for just $5 a month!

I'd Rather Pay Annually

Empower Your Office.

There are two ways to become a Creative Partner: Membership and Sponsorship.

  • "Lead Advocate" benefits for each Full-Time Employee.
As a Creative Partner, Your Company Gets:
  • Join an alliance of arts advocates across the state.
  • Opportunities to host CreativeSC events for SCAA members (including "Lunch & Learns").
