a community of creatives


The Gahanna Area Arts Council is all about community. It exists to foster collaboration between creatives, build connections between civic groups, and bring people together through the Arts. Even if you don’t consider yourself an “artist”, there’s a place for you in our community, and we invite you in with open arms. Welcome.

the arts help to connect us to people different from ourselves

The Gahanna Area Arts Council serves to advance the Arts, of course. But its primary purpose is to connect the community. We’re mission-driven; everything we do starts with these core values.

New This Year!




This year we launch our new summer program. The First Friday of each month, we’re sponsoring Arts in the alley across from Creekside. It’s a makers market meets street festival meets block party, and the entire community is invited!

We’re partnering with The ADAMH Board of Franklin County to install a new mural on Mill Street this fall. But we’re not going to paint it, you are!

Our social media accounts are the best way to stay connected to the Council on a day-to-day basis. Follow just one or all three, it’s up to you. We’re just happy to have you in the fold.

We use Facebook to tell stories, Twitter to have conversations, and Instagram as a digital gallery space to feature some of our community’s best artists.
