Fulton County Arts & Culture.

Program Overview

The Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture assists the Fulton County Commission in the development of public policy on public support for the arts industry, makes recommendations to Fulton County Commissioners on funding the arts and generally oversees the development and implementation of publicly assisted programs that address the diverse cultural needs for Fulton County's citizens.

Fulton County Arts & Culture is both partner and catalyst in developing new arts opportunities in Fulton County and supports programs which ensure broad access to the arts in the Fulton County’s ten municipalities and unincorporated areas.

Fulton County Arts and Culture serves Fulton County citizens by supporting, developing and implementing arts and culture programming.  Our department provides funding to contract arts organizations; manages Fulton County’s Public Art Program; conducts job readiness and life skills training through our Art at Work program; and provides arts instruction for children, teens and adults as well as over 100 annual cultural events through our 5 neighborhood Arts Centers.  We also organize master classes, workshops and other training for artists and arts organizations and operate several galleries and performance venues.
