Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo
ACGK is an organization that serves arts and culture throughout our community. We don’t make art, but we do help make the arts thrive. Much of the work we do is behind the scenes, and a great deal of our time is spent in one-on one meetings with our members – with artists, advising them on how to write grants, or with organization leaders, helping them plan new programs. Because of our links within the community, we make connections that bring people and resources together.
ACGK networks with other community organizations, including those in education, human services and economic development. In this way, we make the arts part of our community dialogue.
We help artists and arts organizations produce music, theatre, dance, visual, media and literary art.
We administer three grant programs for both individuals and organizations.
We provide exhibit space for visual artists.
We produce Art Hop, an evening of art exhibits and great fun taking place monthly in downtown Kalamazoo.
We produce Art on the Mall, a weekend long event, supporting local and regional artists.
We promote collaborations of arts organizations.
