Welcome!

Welcome to our new website. We’re hoping it is more user friendly, content rich and relevant to all of our visitors.  I’m excited about the opportunity to “blog” here because I have missed the creative writing outlet I had with the Bay Arts & Entertainment Magazine.  If you’ve known us very long – we used to publish a quarterly booklet about the arts in the county, but the economic climate required that we adjust to live within our means.  Now we publish a Community Cultural Calendar every couple of months that runs in the Panama City News Herald and is linked on this site.

Anyway – we are all in the same economic boat – so there’s no point in bemoaning our less than unique state.  Despite the choppy conditions, we’ve landed a series for 2012-2013 that we think will please all aboard.  Not only the variety in the titles, but the fact that Bay Arts Alliance members can get all 5 shows for the same amount paid last year for 4!

Additionally, two of our Arts in Education programs have unique opportunities for community outreach and include public performances! Every year, we bring free live performances to all Bay District first, third and fifth graders. Check out our Arts in Education page linked above.

So, all ashore that’s goin’ ashore!
