Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Allied Arts Council of St. Joseph, Missouri exists "to bring arts and people together." Founded in 1963, the Council is one of the oldest in the State of Missouri and is acknowledged statewide as an arts leader. In 1990, the City of St. Joseph designated the Allied Arts Council as the City's official community arts agency. Operated with a staff of four and a volunteer base approaching 2,000, the Council takes the lead in our community in organizing, fund-raising, advocating, educating, and servicing the local arts community.
Organizational membership in the Council is open to non-profit agencies who provide arts related activities. Currently sixteen arts and cultural agencies are members. As an umbrella agency, the Council assists with scheduling , funding, and marketing for all member agencies. The Council is also working with the city of St. Joseph to increase marketing for the major performing arts center in the city, The Missouri Theater.
The Council provides educational programs, art exhibits, and summer youth arts programs, and operates the annual Trails West! arts festival.
