Our Mission

Our mission is to support, promote, and advance arts and culture.

 

Our Vision

Our vision is a community where arts and culture are recognized as integral to the lives of all people.

 

Who We Are

The Arts Council is the local umbrella arts agency that provides a unified voice for all cultural organizations and activities in the greater Tampa and Hillsborough County region and promotes the good news about the cultural vitality of our community to a national audience.

 

What We Do

The Arts Council is committed to lead the charge to ensure a healthy environment for arts and culture in this community for generations to come. We galvanize widespread support for arts and culture while also providing grants, unified marketing efforts, research, and advocacy to help our entire cultural community thrive.

 

Why We Matter

Our efforts play a vital role in making Tampa and Hillsborough County more appealing to new residents, tourists, and employers looking for a new home.

Our Funding Partners

The Arts Council and its programs are funded in part by the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners; Hillsborough County Public Schools; by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of Arts and Culture and the State of Florida; the Gobioff Foundation; and when you purchase the Florida State of the Arts license plate.
