Arts Alliance Community Impact

The Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County is proud to be one of the original 2012 Giving Challenge participants. Thanks to the tremendous support of the Giving Challenge, the Alliance has been able to make a major impact on arts education, arts advocacy, and growth of arts and cultural organizations.

  • 150 youth groups have performed at the Inspire Sarasota Festival (formally known as the Youth Arts Festival) since 2012.
  • In 2017 over 2000 students experienced the art of Patriot Plaza.
  • Over $2.4 million in grants were administered by the Alliance in 2017 for local organizations.
  • In 2012 the Alliance began hosting exhibits for local artists. In 2017 the Alliance provided the space and services for six art exhibits.
