Cultural Arts of Waco is the  umbrella  name  of  our organization as we have grown from a festival Waco Cultural Arts Fest to a larger multi disciplinary arts presenter.

Over  31% 0f  our  Waco  population  lives  below  the  national  poverty level.

All our arts events are free of  charge so we can reach all sectors of our community

WHAT MATTERS MOST

What attaches residents to their communities doesn’t change much from place to place,the things that connect you to your community are generally the same.

•     Social offerings — Places for people to meet each other and the feeling that people in the community care about each other
•     Openness — How welcoming the community is to different types of people, including families with young children, minorities,            and talented college graduates
•     Aesthetics — The physical beauty of the community including the availability of parks and green spaces

FUNDING through grants helps us to effect each of these findings

We   are  proud  to  have  received  grants over the years of  our  existence  from:

The  National Endowment  for the Arts      ART WORKS

Texas Commission on the  Arts

The Mid- America Arts Alliance

The Cooper Foundation

Waco Foundation

The Rapoport Foundation

The Paul and Jane Meyer Family Foundation

WITHOUT  THESE  GRANTS  WE WOULD  NOT  HAVE BEEN ABLE TO  BRING  AS  MUCH QUALITY ARTS PROGRAMMING TO OUR  COMMUNITY
