The Red Chair Project

To answer your question, yes... Orlando does care about their arts & artists. Taken from their website, "The Red Chair Project is a public service designed to increase participation in the Orlando/Central Florida arts and cultural community by building awareness. As a collaborative campaign involving arts and cultural organizations from Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties, Red Chair Project is the ultimate resource for learning what to do and where to go for everything cultural. A nonprofit service, the Red Chair Project strives to increase participation by providing methods to increase ticket sales, increase arts education opportunities and promote arts and cultural philanthropy."

On the website you can find information about the following arts in the surrounding counties:
  • Dance
  • Festivals
  • Film
  • Heritage/Ethnic
  • Kid-Friendly
  • Literature/Poetry
  • Museums
  • Music
  • Theatre
  • Visual Arts
  • Classes/Workshops
Each year The Red Chair Project holds a fundraiser in which photographers donate their time and prints to be auctioned off at a gala. I am looking forward to participating in their fundraiser this year, which is featuring dance.
