At ArtsBuild we work each day towards building a stronger community through the arts with our investments and focus in three main areas – arts access, arts education and arts leadership. Here are just a few examples:

  • Twenty-one local arts organizations received annual Mission Support grants this year.
  • Community Cultural Connections grants have been awarded to support more than 125 unique arts programs, events and projects across Hamilton County since 2012.
  • Our volunteer grants review panel takes a serious look at what arts organizations do to create more access and participation in their programs.
  • Our Imagine! arts education initiative is one-of-a-kind and very popular with public school teachers. Last year the program served almost 12,000 students.
  • More than 400 alumni have been through the Holmberg Arts Leadership Institute, many of whom now participate in the community as knowledgeable, passionate and articulate advocates and leaders for the arts.

Through all of our endeavors, ArtsBuild is committed to the vision of more arts in more places for more people. It is clear that the arts are more essential than ever to learning, our economy, social impact, healing, and overall enrichment of our lives. ArtsBuild has been committed to supporting the arts in Chattanooga and Hamilton County for more than 50 years. With the cooperation, generosity and talent of everyone in Chattanooga, ArtsBuild is committed to building a stronger community through the arts for the next 50 years.
