The Vision

We envision a South Carolina where the arts are valued and all people benefit from a variety of creative experiences.


The Mission

The mission of the South Carolina Arts Commission is to promote equitable access to the arts and support the cultivation of creativity in South Carolina.

Our Values

Five core values inform our vision and guide our daily work.
