The Seminole Cultural Arts Council (SCAC) is a catalyst for the preservation of local cultural and historic heritage, including performing, literary, visual arts and sciences; serving to sustain, develop and advance the cultural life of Seminole County.
Formed in 1994, the Seminole Cultural Arts Council is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and a Member of the Florida Association of Local Arts Agencies and ACE (Arts for a Complete Education).
We offer relevant e-newsletters, local arts publications, fundraising events, grants program, a county-wide arts and cultural map, workshops/seminars and community based arts programs.
Our mission: The Seminole Cultural Arts Council (SCAC) serves to advocate for Seminole County’s arts-rich community in Central Florida.
In May, 1995 the Seminole County Board of Commissioners designated the Council as the official recipient of the Florida ARTS license plate funds. With this and other funding, grants, services, programs and information are provided to arts and cultural organizations, individual artists and the community. During 1996, a high-profile group of business and community leaders formed an active Arts Council Board of Directors. The Seminole Cultural Arts Council has grown in size, diversity and scope since that time, reflecting the dynamic changes resulting from the growth of our communities county-wide.
Each year, the Seminole Cultural Arts Council supports a variety of programming and activities for school children, families and senior citizens. Two core programs, “Arts for Education” and “Arts in Public Places”, provide key services and support to help cultural organizations deliver arts experiences in our community. These vital programs are funded in part by the Arts Council Annual Membership Campaign.
With support received through the membership campaign, SCAC provides funding for outreach programs for special populations, scholarships, educational exhibitions, and to maintain the affordability of community-based arts and cultural experiences and activities.
