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
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
