A new Northwest Arkansas arts service organization is being established to expand access to arts, culture and heritage. The organization will be incubated at the Northwest Arkansas Council with support from the Walton Family Foundation.
The newly announced arts organization will focus on building the system-wide capacity of the region’s arts and culture organizations through programming to support leadership development, regional communications, professional development, convenings, small-scale grants and advocacy. It will create a strategic plan to attract and retain practicing artists and cultural organizations of all sizes and disciplines. The organization will showcase Northwest Arkansas as a premier destination for the arts, with the goal of encouraging additional public support, cultural tourism and economic development.
