    OUR MISSION With 50 years of history as an anchor for cultural life in Durham, Durham Arts Council creates community through the active involvement of artists, teachers, students, business partners, friends and donors. We invite you to engage in the arts each day and join us in our mission of promoting excellence in and access to the creation, experience and active support of the arts for all the people of our community. Durham Arts Council’s Web site can be found at www.durhamarts.org

    OUR HISTORY Founded in 1954 to promote and nurture the arts of Durham,Allied Arts was renamed Durham Arts Council, Inc. (DAC) in 1975.Three years later, the Council moved into the his- toric Central High School and City Hall building which was constructed in 1906. In the mid- 1980s, after a three year renovation, the city-owned building became DAC’s long-term home.

    OUR FUNDING Durham Arts Council, Inc. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization funded by earned revenues, grants and contributions from corporations, foundations and individuals and support from the City of Durham and the North Carolina State Arts Council.
