Jesse Beason is a volunteer with the Regional Arts & Culture Council and winner of a 2015 Volunteer Recognition Award.

“Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) Board of Directors met Jesse Beason on his first day as former City Commissioner Sam Adam’s Arts Policy Advisor. Fast forward to today when he is finishing six years of exemplary RACC board service.

He serves on the Executive Committee, Grants Review Committee as chair, and the Equity

Committee. We count on his wisdom, smart analysis, challenging ideas, and good humor in all he does with and for RACC and the arts communities we serve. We have been so lucky to have him a part of the RACC team. Thank you, Jesse!”
