Get Involved

The Arts & Culture Alliance is a membership network of decision-makers representing the arts and cultural attractions of the Greater Louisville Region and Southern Indiana. In the ACA, leaders of regional arts groups work together to identify common goals and pursue projects and events that accomplish their common objectives.

Full members with voting rights must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Attraction must be represented by a Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer, or managing professional.
  • Attraction must be situated in Louisville's seven-county region (three Kentucky and four Indiana counties).
  • Attraction must have a cultural or educational public service mission.
  • Attraction must be a destination facility or performance activity that attracts the public on a regular or seasonal basis, or a non-profit entity / professional association supporting this sector.
  • Attraction should maintain membership in a national professional association in its discipline if it exists. Individual artists or arts and culture organizations that do not fit the criteria above are invited to join the ACA for networking at the quarterly meetings.

Yes Stands United.

 

YES does not sit on the fence. YES does not resist change. YES overcomes convention, kindles creativity and sparks innovation. YES summons artists, dreamers, makers and thinkers to help the community become a richer place to live.

 

Say Yes to Arts and Culture.

YES! A Small Word with a Massive Impact

In 2015 over 100 of the region’s diverse and dynamic arts and cultural organizations united and used the power of YES to accomplish something greater than any one organization could do on its own.

This year-long festival was YES! Fest — A Year of Environment and Sustainability. YES! Fest provided a platform to explore the important topic of the environment and sustainability. Through collaborative efforts as well as individual organizational programming, YES! Fest connected the arts, culture and the environment in an innovative way that engaged dialogue and thoughtful conversation throughout our community.

Arts & Culture Day

Two years ago, we created Arts & Culture Day to showcase our members’ education programs and to serve as a kick-off for the Cultural Pass.

The Cultural Pass

With the Cultural Pass, all children under the age of 18 are admitted free of charge to more than 30 arts and cultural venues around Greater Louisville — and one adult is admitted at no additional cost with each child!

The Objectives of the Cultural Pass

  • Impact summer learning loss by creating a learning experience through programming, activities, and education.
  • Establish a life-long relationship between Louisville’s children and the art and cultural intuitions.
  • Work to break down barriers that prohibit children from accessing the city’s art and cultural venues.
