Welcome to the Chenango Arts Council. We believe the arts build a strong and vibrant local community. That's why we support the growth and development of local arts through grants to artists and organizations, offer life long learning and experiences for residents and artists, and provide a beautiful venue for many types of events.

Previously known as the Chenango County Council of the Arts, we are now entering our 40th year as a cultural service provider located in Norwich, NY. In 2013, the Council allocated $95,400 in cultural funding to Broome, Chenango and Otsego County non profit organizations, artists and schools. In 2014, we will allocate $112,500. Visit the Grants tab above for more information on funding opportunities, including this year's recipients, and visit all areas of our website to find out more about our other programs and services!

The Campaign for the Chenango Arts Council, 2014

As you know, after 15 years as Executive Director, Victoria will be leaving the Council in June. At the same time, the Council will be entering its 40th year of service to the County and surrounding areas.
As we look back on the last 40 years, we can see that the Council has been a constant presence in Chenango County, during good times and bad, adapting to change, responding to our membership, and always remaining true to its core mission.
And yet the struggle to sustain and grow continues, so that another generation can grow up enjoying all that the Council offers to our communities.
If we are to make our budget this fiscal year, we need to raise $15,000 in this campaign. Can we count on you? Help us continue to be an anchor of stability amid change, an element of pride in our communities, and a focal point for the quality of life in our county.
Your donation makes a difference. Click the “donate” button to join the campaign!
