The Jackson County Arts Council supports artists, arts professionals, arts businesses, non-profits, and community organizations in Jackson County. In the last 5 years, we’ve invested over $325,000 into the local arts community through grants and sponsorships.

Grassroots Grant

The Grassroots Arts Program Sub-grant provides financial support for Jackson County community and nonprofit organizations that offer programs and projects that enhance the arts for county residents.

Artist Support Grant

The Artist Support Grant was created by the North Carolina Arts council to provide direct support to individual artists during and following the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative funds professional and artistic development for emerging and established artists to enhance their skills and abilities to create work or to improve business operations and capacity to bring their work to new audiences.

JCAC Art Sponsorships

Occasionally Jackson County Arts Council will sponsor or fund an artist project or organization that serves artists, who have a specific need.
