Department of Arts & Culture

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 provides funding to contract arts organizations; manages Fulton County’s Public Art Program; conducts job readiness and life skills training through our Art at Work program; and provides arts instruction for children, teens and adults as well as over 100 annual cultural events through five neighborhood Arts Centers.  The department also organize master classes, workshops and other training for artists and arts organizations and operate several galleries and performance venues.

The Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture operates five art centers. The art centers provide arts instruction for all ages and most disciplines including visual art, dance, theatre, music, multi-media, creative writing and quilting.  The centers also produce arts and cultural events throughout the year including exhibitions, plays, concerts, poetry readings, book-signings, dance concerts and many others.

In 2019, Fulton County Arts and Culture was pleased to kick off the 40th year of arts and culture in Fulton County. The department is proud to build on a long legacy of quality service delivery under the celebratory theme of 40 Years of Creative Leadership.
