It includes on-line resources, regional event calendar, community arts directory, tools for streaming classes and workshops, and on-line collaborative spaces for sharing work, feedback, and successes. Already more than 600 people have become AIR members!

website, then you'll be ready to sign up and build your directory page. Don't forget to make sure all of your artist friends, co-workers, etc. have done the same. Basic membership is free - only an email address is required to get started. We know that once people explore the website, they'll come back for more -entering Calendar events, and submitting Knowledge Center and Opportunity Center items. The more members we have engaging with each other throughout the Intermountain West, the faster we will all succeed.Take the tour now!
