Arts Advocacy

TPAC relies on support from local, state, and national public entities to provide the cultural and educational programs central to our work in Nashville and Tennessee.

Visit Education & Community to learn more about the critical arts education programs made possible thanks to government grant support.

TPAC is a proud member of Nashville Arts Coalition and Tennesseans for the Arts, advocating for public funding that supports arts organizations in Nashville and Tennessee. Part of that support is participation in the Gift-A-Tag program. An arts license plate directly supports the Tennessee Arts Commission and organizations like TPAC.

TPAC encourages you to join us in thanking our public representatives for their support and in advocating for continued public funding for the arts. Investment in the arts is critical to improving learning outcomes for students and creating culturally and economically vibrant communities.
