Our Mission

The Arts and Education Council enriches the vibrancy of the St. Louis community by investing in arts organizations and growing the base of local arts supporters.



Arts are among our community’s greatest assets. Whether it’s music, dance, theatre, film, literary or visual arts, the arts teach us, inspire us and make us smile. The Arts and Education Council is a dynamic collaboration of businesses, individuals, and community partners who work to raise funds and enhance the quality and variety of arts experiences throughout the 16-county, bi-state St. Louis region.
