Our latest collaboration as part of RBLP’s “Giving Back” program – in which we certify staff from select nonprofits in Building Resilient Teams™ – is the Brazosport Fine Arts Council, who operate the Center for the Arts and Sciences located in Clute, TX!
The Brazosport Center for the Arts and Sciences (BCFAS) is the cultural home for an entire community of approximately 340,000 people on the upper Texas Gulf Coast. It was established in 1976 as a result of the visioning and commitment of the region’s industrial and civic leadership and has grown to encompass a facility that has the responsibility of providing performance and exhibit space to its permanent residents, including Brazosport Art League, Brazosport Museum of Natural Science, BASF Planetarium, Brazosport Center Stages community theater and Brazosport Symphony Orchestra.
All of the various activities put on by the residents of the BCFAS are volunteer-driven. The nonprofit support staff manages the daily challenges of running a multi-use cultural facility. From actors and directors to astronomers and archaeologists, each volunteer donates their time and energy to the cultural and educational enrichment of their communities. While operational challenges remain due to COVID-19, the organization posts detailed re-opening guidelines and have limited events currently in place such as weekly art classes. There are upcoming theatrical productions presently scheduled for March 2021, and the BASF Planetarium is offering their program virtually – and free! – every Monday.
The Brazosport Fine Arts Council staff are being instructed by Bob Fritz, who volunteered his time to teach the exam prep training course.
