We believe the arts are critical to shaping a vibrant community for all. They spark innovation, inspire our kids, build bridges between cultures, stimulate our economy and enrich lives.
Every year, your support for the Arts and Education Council (A&E) starts a ripple effect of positive change across our region by connecting adults and children with meaningful arts experiences. A&E's multi-faceted programs reach nearly 100 arts organizations across the bi-state region, where the arts support 19,000 jobs, generate more than $590 million in economic impact and engage more than 11 million individuals each year.
Thank you for your support as we keep art happening. Learn more about the ripple effect of the arts and the impact of your gift to A&E.
