Our Mission and Vision
The Arkansas Arts Council will advance and empower the arts for the benefit of all Arkansans.
Arkansas policy makers, stakeholders and the general public will fully recognize the educational, economic and cultural impact of the arts, creative people and creative enterprises.
Arkansas abounds with culture and creativity. The arts strengthen the economy, drive tourism and business, and improve academic performance. The Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, advances and empowers the arts by providing services and funding for programming that encourages and assists literary, performing and visual artists in achieving standards of professional excellence.
The Arkansas Arts Council also provides technical and financial assistance to Arkansas arts organizations and other providers of cultural and educational programs. This statewide programming and assistance ultimately provides cultural, educational and economic opportunities for the benefit of all Arkansans. Funding is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and the State of Arkansas.
