Arts Council Menifee – Home

The arts are a vibrant and integral part of the Menifee’s culture and Arts Council Menifee offers you the opportunity to participate in several venues.   From dance to spoken word, jazz, to theater, photography, painting, volunteering and more… if you have interest – we have an outlet!

Recently voted Non-profit of the Year, Arts Council Menifee is a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the arts in our community.  We support the area’s visual arts, music, theater, dance and literary arts by collaborating with local organizations, businesses, school districts, Mt. San Jacinto College, and the City of Menifee to promote local talent.

Mimi Maki is a Trustee for Arts Council Menifee and she is in TX assisting with the flood areas.

FB_IMG_1432397723212_resizedFB_IMG_1432398032413_resizedI joined the Red Cross 10 years ago as a volunteer after I decided to retire. I have taught CPR, Health and Safety, and have lead a DAT Team (Disaster Action Team) responding to local disasters like home fires.

I have used my artist skills to design 5 Red Cross pins, the most popular being “Dawn of Hope” following my deployments to Hurricane Sandy.

I now volunteer as a public affairs officer helping to tell the Red Cross story. I’m a member of the Advance Public Affairs Team where I speak to national and international media on behalf of the Red Cross.

Last year I was awarded the highest award in the Red Cross, the Clara Barton Award for my leadership and service.
