What is a members social? 

One of the perks to becoming a member at the York Region Arts Council is having the opportunity to come out to our member socials!

Our socials are a great way for you to network and meet other people working in the arts and culture sectors in York Region. The members social is always held at a restaurant - for more recent socials, we have chosen The London Pub in Richmond Hill; - YRAC reserves a space to host the event and orders platters of food for all to enjoy while we mix and mingle. This social is also a great way for us here at the York Region Arts Council to interact with you, learn about your business and your art practice, as well as how our membership or programs have helped you further it - as well as how we can improve moving forward to provide a better service to our local artists.

See you at the next social in October 2019. Details to come.
