Outreach Resource Guide

For Arts, Sciences and Humanities

The Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences has compiled this extensive guide to help arts, sciences and humanities organizations, artists, and performers connect with new audiences and discover new venues in Baltimore County.

Do you have a program you'd like to present in Baltimore County's senior centers or libraries? Looking to expand your educational outreach to Baltimore County Public Schools? How about recreation and community centers, county museums, stages and exhibit spaces? If you are looking for an affordable venue in Baltimore County, we've surveyed area colleges, universities, places of worship and non-traditional venues to help you get started.

Baltimore County Public Library

There is one point of contact to reach all 19 public library branches.
