Duties and responsibilities of the Arts and Humanities Commission include encouraging the development of, appreciation for and participation in the arts and humanities in the City of Rowlett.
The Arts and Humanities Commission has 10 meetings per year. (No meeting in July or December.) In addition to these meetings, there are three to five special projects chaired or jointly chaired by subcommittees. Each special project could require from 10 to 25 hours of service. Typically a commission member would chair or jointly chair just one project.
