About Arts Council Northeast

With a vision of access to the arts for all, our mission is to provide artistic, cultural, and educational opportunities to improve the quality of life in our communities.

Founded in 1975 as the Trinity Arts Foundation, Arts Council Northeast evolved from the Trinity Arts Guild. Arts Council Northeast officially received its nonprofit status in 1978.

Located in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, Arts Council Northeast serves 16 cities: Bedford, Colleyville, Euless, Grapevine, Haltom City, Haslet, Hurst, Keller, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills, Roanoke, Saginaw, Southlake, Trophy Club, Watauga, and Westlake. In addition, it serves the seven school districts: Birdville, Carroll, Eagle Mountain-Saginaw, Grapevine-Colleyville, Hurst-Euless-Bedford, Keller, and Northwest as well as private and home schools. For over 35 years, Arts Council Northeast has worked to become an integral partner with the cities, schools, and businesses, including state and national organizations, to raise awareness that art, culture, and entertainment are vital to the economic well-being of our communities. Arts Council Northeast is committed to developing and implementing ways to encourage arts and education to the residents of North Tarrant  and Southern Denton Counties.

Arts Council Northeast has been recognized by the Texas Commission on the Arts as the official arts council of North Tarrant County since 1997. Since that time, Arts Council Northeast has granted over $665,000, with a match totaling over 1.4 million dollars, for the arts in North Tarrant County. These grants support art programs for at-risk youth, school children; children who have lost loved ones, senior citizens, and emerging arts groups.

For the past 33 years, Arts Council Northeast, in conjunction with the cities of North Tarrant and Southern Denton Counties, has been presenting visual and performing arts concerts free and open to the public featuring local, national, and international artists as well as new emerging artists.

Since 1995, over 4622 students have attended Summer Arts College with 1238 scholarships. This unique opportunity for children ages 6-15 to be a part of an imaginative, fun week-long cultural experience held throughout North Tarrant County. Participation in the Summer Arts College opens up children's minds and worlds, offering them skills they need for a bright future.
