A Message from the ACA:


The Arlington Center for the Arts stands with the BIPOC community today and everyday. As we continue our mission to transform lives and build community through the arts, we must call attention to the injustices within that community and serve as a source of empowerment for all artists. Artists often call on society to think differently and to change the way we see ourselves and others and we are proud to provide a venue for that dialogue.


The ACA is committed to continue to amplify the voices of artists, including those most marginalized by societal inequalities. We also recognize there is more work to be done to ensure equitable access to our artistic programs, opportunities, and resources. Black lives matter and we encourage our community to stand with us in support of the BIPOC community.

Staying Connected w/ ACA

We recognize the uncertainty that weighs on all of us as our communities respond to the precautions around COVID-19. While we all must do our part to prevent the spread of the virus, we as an organization also feel a responsibility to continue to engage our community through the arts in these times of extended isolation.

The ACA will regularly be compiling activities, resources, and ideas for beating the social distancing blues. Please visit our Staying Connected page for a regularly updated list of links, resources, and ideas!
