The Arts Council of Williamson County (TN) is a catalyst for the enrichment of cultural life
in the county by funding, promoting and expanding the arts.
The Arts Council of Williamson County (ACWC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) service organization that exists to enrich the lives of the citizens of Williamson County, Tennessee by bringing the arts and people together. The Arts Council envisions a dynamic, lively and diverse arts community which is accessible to all and which is a major cultural destination.
The arts play a major role. They are stimulus for imagination and innovation, an engine for economic development, a proven platform for community building, and a vehicle for diverse cultural expression. The Arts Council recognizes that support for artists is more critical now than ever before, and supports the arts primarily through artists working at the local level in the community context. A precipitous decline in State and Federal funds available for granting has created this need for increased support.
As a leadership organization for the arts in Williamson County, the Arts Council promotes artistic opportunities by providing financial support, fostering coordinated cultural planning, offering programs to educate and develop future audiences, providing forums of expressions for local artists and by advocating for arts and its member organizations at the local, state, and national levels.
