Advocacy & Education

We want to provide a way for artists, arts and cultural organizations, creative businesses and arts advocates to speak with one voice on the importance of the arts to our community. These support materials and educational opportunities will help you make the case that the return on investment in the arts is measurable and significant.

About the Alliance


History

Communities need a breakthrough strategy for providing artists and non-profit arts organizations with critical operating support, and the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance has taken on that challenge. Founded in 2012, the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance evolved from a shared desire among city and community leaders to make a serious investment in our local arts organizations, artists and creative businesses.

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is the only 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to raising money and advocating for our entire creative community – artists, arts and cultural organizations, and creative businesses. We raise money through individual and corporate gifts, event sponsorships, and state and federal grants that support community-wide arts efforts.

  • Organizations like the NEA award significant grants that individual arts organizations and individuals cannot apply for – but we can.
  • Many cities have a grant program for individual artists, but St. Petersburg doesn’t – yet.

We advocate by providing studies and other resource materials to help everyone make the case for the importance of the arts as an economic driver that also contributes to our quality of life.


Mission

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance provides leadership for the financial success, quality, diversity, and organizational stability of the arts and cultural community of St. Petersburg. 


Vision

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance strives to be the community voice for the arts – empowering artists, arts organizations and creative businesses to work collaboratively. We advocate for the arts, facilitate the growth of the arts community, and drive economic development in St. Petersburg.
