Department of Arts & Culture


We believe the arts are essential to the quality of life of our citizens and to the economic and social health of our communities. The mission of the Fulton County Department of Arts and Culture is to insure all citizens’ access to the arts.


The Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture assists the Fulton County Commission in the development of public policy on public support for the arts industry, makes recommendations to Fulton County Commissioners on funding the arts, and generally oversees the development and implementation of publicly assisted programs that address the diverse cultural needs for Fulton County's citizens.

The department funds contract arts organizations, manages Fulton County’s Public Art Program, provides art instruction for children, teens, and adults, and over 100 annual cultural events through two neighborhood Arts Centers, Public Art, and Community Partnerships.

The department also organizes master classes, workshops, and other training for artists and arts organizations and operates galleries and performance venues.

The Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture operates two art centers and programs. FCAC provides art instruction for all ages and various disciplines, including visual art, dance, theatre, music, multi-media, creative writing, and quilting. The department also produces arts and cultural events throughout the year, including exhibitions, plays, concerts, poetry readings, book signings, dance concerts, and more.
