The Arts & Business Council leverages and unites the unique resources of the arts and business communities to create a thriving, sustainable creative culture in Nashville.
Investing in artists in central to the Arts & Business Council’s longterm vision of a community where artists are valued as critical assets to be engaged, supported, and empowered. The Arts & Business Council believes a strong sector of creatives and creative businesses will enhance the overall economic profile of the Greater Nashville area. A thriving arts community:
1) attracts businesses to Nashville;
2) makes for a healthy, happy population; and
3) creates strong, innovative solutions to social, business and civic challenges.
To deliver this mission, the Arts & Business Council creates and evaluates programming within three focus areas: 1) We create mutually beneficial partnerships between arts and business; 2) We provide direct services, key opportunities, education to the creative community to help them master the business of art; 2) We inspire workplace creativity in businesses to demonstrate the impact of the arts through tangible benefits and develop life-long arts participants and supporters.
