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.

Through our work, we expect Memphis will grow as a Place that attracts and retains talented People and sustainable arts organizations, attracting diverse artists with sustained opportunities to create and perform and ensuring the arts are an integral part of the quality of life.

We have a commitment to strengthen the Arts Sector, to advance Racial Equity and to support artists and organizations in times of need.
