For almost 50 years ArtsBuild has supported the creative future of Hamilton County by investing more than $70 million in our community’s leading arts organizations, funding arts integrations programs for our students and teachers, and ensuring that even our most underserved populations have access to arts programming.

ArtsBuild provides significant operating support to its 12 Cultural Partners:

Chattanooga Symphony & Opera
Chattanooga Theatre Centre
Creative Discovery Museum

ArtsBuild provides free professional arts experiences to more than 11,400 Hamilton County students in grades 1-4 each year. Events include Chattanooga Theatre Centre’s Youth Theatre production, Chattanooga Ballet’s The Nutcracker, Chattanooga Symphony & Opera’s Young People’s Concert, and a Theatre Express performance with the Southern Lit Alliance.

In 2012 ArtsBuild established the Community Cultural Connections grant program designed to bring arts and cultural programming to underserved areas in Hamilton County. These grants have funded more than 70 projects for a total investment of $170,000, with new projects awarded continuously. Recipient organizations have included Orange Grove Center, Salvation Army, H*Art Gallery, Signal Centers, Northside Neighborhood House, and SPLASH.
