About Us

ArtsMemphis sustains Memphis’ world-renowned cultural vitality and strengthens local communities through the arts.  Our vision is a Memphis in which every individual feels pride in our community's authentic cultural assets and experiences the impact of the arts in their lives. In fiscal year 2020, we awarded 283 grants to 71 local organizations and 137 artists, totaling nearly $2.8 million in annual funding. All of this is possible because of the support from generous donors.
