The Arts People

Who are The Arts People?

The Arts People (TAP) are champions of the many arts opportunities at Parish, also known as Parisharts. This group of supporters makes a difference for the arts at Parish by promoting awareness of programs, achievements and activities, while offering assistance and funding to PARISHarts. The Arts People membership dues and fundraising go directly to specific needs throughout Parisharts as well as to the Limitless Campaign in efforts to elevate Parisharts and build the forthcoming Parish Performance & Community Center. TAP offers opportunities to experience the arts both at Parish and within the broader community. Also, TAP serves as a center of arts fellowship for Parish families and the PARISHarts faculty and staff.

Parents, relatives and other supporters are all welcome to join The Arts People. Joining at any level benefits arts programs at Parish.

Please consider joining or renewing your membership in The Arts People today.
