The Sound of Something Better

Art councils create a richer community and a more...

vibrant place to live, work, learn, and play. They strive to deepen and enrich our culture and help bond communities from all walks of life through art. Arts councils work hard to stay funded, represent local culture, and advocate the importance of the arts for all ages.

Art, music, and culture genuinely matter and should be encouraged through all forms of artistic expression. We encourage you to join the Arts Council of Kern, and with your participation, we can keep our art community alive and thriving.
