Be part of something amazing!
Become a MEMBER of Standing Rock Cultural Arts and help support the arts !

CLICK HERE to view our Membership Brochure !


Standing Rock Cultural Arts is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) art and education organization based in downtown Kent. Our mission is to Build Community Through The Arts.

We nurture the spirit of creativity by providing opportunities for children and the public to explore the arts. We do this by providing opportunities for artists to bring their work to the community through exhibitions, poetry readings, workshops, theatrical productions, music performances, festivals, public art projects and special events.

In an effort to help support these community-enriching activities, we are initiating a new, low-priced, tax-deductible Membership Plan in 2011 to supplement our other funding. We have student memberships available for only $5 per year and a variety of plans to fit individuals, couples, families, and even businesses! All members will receive special benefits that are not generally available to the public. Please read below to view the current benefits of our membership plan. We look forward to adding additional benefits as they become available and we invite any businesses to partner with us on discounts. Of course, we will also continue, as always, to accept any tax-deductible charitable contributions in order to assist our mission of Community through the Arts.

Again, your membership and/or contribution is tax-deductible and greatly appreciated! Without the generous support of our donors and future members, we would not be able to offer the diverse quality cultural arts programming that we offer continuously throughout each year. There is no greater compliment to our organization about how valued our programming is to our community and area than your ongoing support! Checks may be made payable to:

Standing Rock Cultural Arts (SRCA)
300 N. Water St, Suite H.
