Education and Community

The Arts Council, with the Bama Theatre and Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center, are dedicated to providing Tuscaloosa county and West Alabama with cultural enrichment opportunities through the arts. Not only do we provide educators the tools and resources to enhance their existing curriculum, we also offer the community as a whole the chance to grow their cultural experiences and awareness of the arts in our area. To the right, you will find a list of just some of the community and education resources provided by The Arts Council.
