Policies

The Artist Resource Center (ARC) is a not-for-profit facility that provides artists with the tools and knowledge to grow in their craft, with practical training in both the creative and the business sides of the entertainment industry. The ARC also serves as a production house for inspirational music and film endeavors, and will provide our community with instructional space, training workshops and artistic development modules, all in a tranquil atmosphere that will inspire the creation of content that will advance the cause of good.

We serve a community of creative individuals with immeasurable amounts of talent in the arts & entertainment world, many of whom don’t always have the access to resources to bring that creativity to fruition. The goal of the ARC is to help artists discover their purpose in life, develop their talents, and in turn, bless the world with the realized creations.

These rules and regulations are set in place to protect the integrity of the atmosphere and its inhabitants, as well as the equipment and furniture. Activities that are considered to be abusive and/or disrespectful to the ARC staff, patrons, and equipment are unacceptable, and such activities will result in expulsion from the premises and denial of future use of the facilities.
