The Division of Cultural Affairs is a primary influence on the "state of the arts" in Florida. The Division fosters development and growth of arts activities, provides arts resources and services, awards excellence, and promotes arts-related public/private partnerships. These are accomplished through workshops, communications and publicity, resources and guidance, and grant programs that support arts, plus many more services to the arts community. The Division also oversees the Museum of Florida History.
The unifying element among all of the Division's programming is the belief that the arts can help change the world for the better and it starts with one person in one community at a time. We help our citizens and visitors "connect the dots" between the arts and quality of life issues and to understand that the arts intersect individual lives in meaningful ways.
