What We Do

The Nebraska Arts Council’s mission is to promote, cultivate and sustain the arts for the people of Nebraska. In achieving this purpose, the Nebraska Arts Council provides grants and services to artists, organizations and communities that:

  • Build creative and proactive leadership in the arts
  • Forge partnerships that create and expand opportunities for the arts
  • Cultivate new resources needed to sustain the arts in Nebraska
  • Establish the arts as basic to education and lifelong learning
  • Use the arts as a catalyst for understanding among cultures
  • Advocate for increased awareness and access to the arts


Grants: See the Grants section of this website for more detailed information.

Services: See the Services section of this website for more detailed information.

The NAC considers itself, in many respects, to be “the reference librarian for the arts”, offering informational assistance through the great range of skills of our staff. Please contact NAC with any questions you have about the arts.
