Helping Our Community Through Unprecedented Times


Our lives have been turned upside down in a matter of days, we are being bombarded with phone messages, text messages and emails about what to do and what not to do. It is so easy to forget about the importance of the arts right now…but the arts help us process and find a way through the unknown.

We at Shoreline Arts Alliance encourage all of you to keep creating, keep writing, keep singing and dancing and taking wonderful pictures. Remind people about the beauty around us, and we promise to keep supporting you through these difficult times and offer you hope.

As schools begin to close and extracurricular activities are cancelled, scholarships opportunities for our youth may become limited. We understand the importance and necessity of keeping our arts scholarship programs running and continuing to offer artists opportunities, and will continue to do so….
