What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The initial thrust of the Nantucket Arts Council was to create a year-round theater that involved both professional and the community theater. Just as improvements were about to take place at the Straight Wharf Theater, fire struck and demolished the building and removed the initial reason for the Arts Council’s existence. In the late 70s and early 80s, NAC produced some very interesting exhibitors at the NHA’s Fair Street Museum and the Main Street Gallery. In 1994, Nantucket Arts Council began offering grants to non-profit organizations with cultural and artistic programs. Today, the Nantucket Arts Council continues to cultivate the arts by both strengthening current partnerships and seeking new opportunities to collaborate with island cultural and educational non-profits. The scholarships, grants, and awards we present create new possibilities for island artists to further their studies and arts disciplines. With the launch of a new website an

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Today, the Nantucket Arts Council continues to cultivate the arts by both strengthening current partnerships and seeking new opportunities to collaborate with island cultural and educational non-profits. The scholarships, grants, and awards we present create new possibilities for island artists to further their studies and arts disciplines. With the launch of a new website and its comprehensive Arts Calendar, the Nantucket Arts Council commits to fostering an engaged community by presenting all that our island's flourishing artists have to offer.

Supporting local artists with grants and opportunities.
Providing scholarships for young artists.
Bringing talented musical performers to our island community.
Presenting an Arts Festival to showcase and celebrate all art forms on Nantucket.

Through grant funding we bring talent to share with the island community. By showcasing local artists, we promote the arts as well as the individual. The Nantucket Arts Council is respected and supported across the Nantucket community as well as the summer resident community.

Bringing awareness to the arts on Nantucket.
Providing various opportunities to artists and the community at large.
Providing grant money for struggling artists.
We hope to continue to support local artists monetarily until we are able to meet again in person. At that time we will provide opportunities for concerts, exhibits and performances.
