Arts for Everyone!
The Rockford Area Arts Council wants our region to be a place where the creativity and joy that comes from the arts is available to everyone. They want the arts to flourish and become available for all to express themselves as unique individuals and bring together diverse communities. They do that through providing grants for community arts projects, organizing free public arts events like ArtScene & the Beattie Is...Arts Festival, and offering summer arts programs for children and an arts apprenticeship program for youth. The Arts Council serves as a resource and a catalyst to infuse the arts into projects such as trauma informed care, neighborhood police outreach, and Rockford Day-815. They invite all who share their vision of the arts for everyone to join in the work through membership and volunteering.
