Quad City Presenters represents regional arts and cultural organizations. Promotion of the arts and specifically the Quad Cities as an arts destination is the central focus of the group.
Past projects include seminars and forums on grant writing, media relations, advertising venues and an annual public celebration of the arts. The group works together to gain greater visibility for the arts, to build audiences and constituencies. Even though members may be competitors, they realize that each individual success is a stepping stone for other successes.
This organization is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
