Arts and Culture Groups

The Arts Council’s Voting Member Groups (VMGs) are nonprofits whose main mission is arts and culture. These member agencies elect the Board of Trustees that sets the policies to guide the professional staff of the Arts Council.

The member agencies are the cornerstone of making Fayetteville and Cumberland County a good place to live, work and grow up. These arts and cultural organizations are a vital component of economic development, education, tourism and so many other areas that define a healthy community.
