The Arts Are Everywhere!

Established in 1969, ArtsBuild (formerly Allied Arts of Greater Chattanooga) is a private, nonprofit united arts fund and arts council. ArtsBuild provides a united voice for all cultural organizations and activities in Hamilton County.

At the heart of our mission is thinking globally about the arts in Chattanooga. ArtsBuild is looking at the overall arts picture and is leading the charge to ensure a healthy arts environment that sets the path for future generations.

ArtsBuild is also working to tell the good news about just how vibrant our arts community has become. We're gathering all those interested in marketing the arts around one table to develop the best plan to share this story around the country.

Our efforts will play a vital role in making Chattanooga an arts destination, increasing tourism and making our community even more attractive to prospective employers looking for a home.
