Seward Arts Council

fostering the appreciation, education, and understanding of the arts by promoting cultural opportunities, performances, instruction, and exhibitions

what we do

The Seward Arts Council is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit that helps keep the arts alive in Seward. We give money directly to projects and help other groups apply for grant money, and we help provide volunteers and advertising as well.

If you've been to an arts-related event in Seward, then chances are good that the Seward Arts Council was involved. Our biggest annual event is the Seward Music and Arts Festival, but we also help sustain and support a number of other smaller organizations around town, including the community band, the Port City Players, the Seward Mural Society, and the winter movie series, to name just a few.
