Our mission is to support, promote, and enhance the arts in Nassau County and to provide a framework to network and address common concerns.

To our fellow supporters of Arts and Culture in Nassau County:

In the past, Arts and Culture Nassau (ACN) has held a community forum each fall where we highlight our member organizations, grant recipients, and other cultural and artistic endeavors in an effort of community awareness.

However, in this year of uncertainty ACN has decided to forgo the forum in the interest of the safety of both our participants and our community. We will miss all of the vendors, the participants, and our fellow community members who joined us in exploring the art and culture activities of Nassau County. If we continue with the forum in 2021, we would look forward to your joining us then.

If you are a nonprofit 301(C) organization in Nassau County please know that we are continuing to offer grants for both youth and senior citizen arts and culture activities. The grant applications are available on our website (artsandculturenassau.com). The submission period for the senior grants is September 1, 2020 through November 15, 2020. The submission period for the youth grants is December 1, 2020 through January 15, 2021.

And please remember that the sole funding source for these grants is the State of the Arts license plates purchased by Nassau County residents.

We regret the forum cancellation and look forward to your joining us in better times.

Marge Powell, Chair Arts and Culture Nassau
