Contact us today to learn more about how you can help us with an important current project.
The Yellow Springs Arts Council supports local arts infrastructure through program opportunities, publicity, education, fiscal sponsorship, advocacy, and coordinated partnerships across the community. Each year the YSAC supports over 200 local creative workers. The organization began in the 1950’s as the Yellow Springs Arts Association. In 1972, it incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit and adopted the full name, Yellow Springs Arts Council.
YSAC is a member organization and relies on membership dues and donations. The organization is also supported through grant writing and fundraising projects. Artists, appreciators, and supporters of all arts disciplines are welcome and encouraged to participate in the organization. Our programs are accessible to YSAC members, local citizens and visitors through free offerings and ticketed events.
The Yellow Springs Arts Council strives for wide cultural participation in our efforts to meet the needs of the community. YSAC does not discriminate on the basis of age, ability, background, culture, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation or economic circumstance. Through an inclusive practice, we aim to reflect our wider community and promote positive attitudes about similarities and differences with all participants and visitors.
