Creative Aging

The Ohio Intensive Creating Aging Training Initiative is the next phase of Creative Aging Ohio, an initiative begun by the Ohio Arts Council in 2013 that provided grant funding to create and expand programs that engaged older adults in the visual arts, dance, music, writing, and theatre.

Statewide Arts Service Organization Support

Qualifying organizations that provide statewide professional services to arts and cultural organizations are eligible to receive OAC support in a way that honors their unique and valuable contributions to Ohio’s arts sector. These organizations often serve as critical partners to the OAC’s work as they, along with their members or constituents, support our mission to strengthen Ohio communities through the arts.

Fund Every County 

Beginning in 2016, the OAC placed a high priority on directly funding arts and culture taking place in all 88 Ohio counties each biennium. The agency now works every year with local government, schools, nonprofit arts organizations, and other providers in underserved counties to ensure that all Ohioans have ongoing access to the arts. For more information on how to seek funds for your community, contact an OAC coordinator.
