We Invest in Artists and Organizations and Generate Arts Support.

ArtsMemphis is the only organization in Shelby County dedicated to serving and supporting the nonprofit arts sector. In addition to our grant programs, we convene meetings and conversations, we connect organizations to each other and to community partners.

At ArtsMemphis, our purpose as a granting organization is to expand the foundation of art for our city with diligent, thoughtful, diverse, intentional support.   To discover the true impact we have on the arts in Memphis, read the FY2021 Impact Report here.
