The Arts Council of Greater Lansing exists to support, strengthen and promote arts, culture and creativity in the Capital region.
The Arts Council of Greater Lansing has been a leading voice for arts and culture in the Greater Lansing region since 1965 providing direct support to hundreds of artists and arts and cultural organizations located in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties. The role of the Arts Council is to support and promote the work of its constituents by assisting them in the growth and development of their artistic practice, financial stability, and accessibility.
In addition to the support the organization provides its constituents, the agency also provides community arts leadership by actively engaging with area business and civic leaders to ensure that the arts play a vital role in economic development, creative placemaking, community revitalization, and quality of life issues. Currently the Arts Council is not open to the public and is conducting business remotely.
