About ArtsGreensboro

Thanks to businesses, foundations, and thousands of arts enthusiasts, ArtsGreensboro financially supports more than 50 arts organizations and projects each year, connects the public to arts and entertainment, and financially supports the area arts scene through grants, marketing support, advocacy for state and local funding, and other important initiatives and services.

ArtsGreensboro advocates for the arts in a variety of ways on both local and state levels. In partnership with the High Point Area Arts Council, we advocate for arts in education, and support from city, county and state support for the arts in our community.

With an annual budget of approximately $3 million, ArtsGreensboro is a catalyst for innovation to build recognition and support for the arts. Through its ArtsFund-supported grant programs, 17DAYS Arts & Culture Festival, the new Van Dyke Performance Space and other opportunities including the National Folk Festival, ArtsGreensboro is driving the health and vitality of our community by supporting arts education, celebrating the diversity of Greensboro, and driving economic impact through excellence in arts programming.

Founded in 1960 by community leaders as Greensboro’s arts council, ArtsGreensboro has invested nearly $22 million as direct financial support into Greensboro’s arts economy through grants. But the organization has always contributed much more than grants alone. Through the years, the arts council saved the historic Carolina Theatre, created Center City’s Cultural Arts Center, produced the exciting City Stage Festival, and as it has for more than 40 years, operates the Sternberger Artist Center with 16 studios on Summit Avenue in the historic Sternberger House.
