Keep Art Happening!

At the Arts and Education Council our goal is simple – to make sure our region is rich with arts and cultural experiences for all. In the wake of COVID-19 those in the arts community have experienced extreme hardship as venues have closed, performances have been canceled and arts educators have had to suddenly pivot to find new ways to teach their students using virtual and hybrid environments. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the arts continue to build creativity, inspire kids, bridge cultural divides, energize communities and enrich lives. Thanks to your support, the Arts and Education Council has been able to continue to offer financial support and resources to arts organizations and art educators across the bi-state region.

Your gift to the Arts and Education Council campaign will have a stabilizing effect on the St. Louis arts and culture industry. For a gift of $50 (less than $5 per month), you will receive an ARTS Card to access discounts for local art experiences including virtual events. We will also send you a curated bi-weekly Arts Educator Newsletter with local online educational tools, art projects for students at home and news just for art educators. In this critical time of need, your gift to the Arts and Education Council ensures that the arts remain thriving, open and welcoming to us and the community when we get past this pandemic.

Thank you for your support, and for doing your part to ensure that the arts will continue to thrive in our community in the months and years to come. Together, we keep art happening!
