Culture Works is the funding, advocacy, and service organization that passionately inspires, supports, and sustains arts and culture in the Dayton Region. As the united arts fund and local arts agency for Montgomery County and the surrounding seven counties, Culture Works believes that creating and maintaining a vibrant and attractive community filled with quality arts brings measurable and immeasurable value to our citizens.
In 1974, The Dayton Performing Arts Fund was founded to provide operating support for the Dayton Philharmonic, Dayton Opera, and Dayton Ballet. In 1989, recognizing the need to expand the number of organizations served, it was renamed ArtsDayton, and additional organizations were chosen as recipients of funding. In 1993, The Miami Valley Arts Council and ArtsDayton merged to become Culture Works, expanding the scope of services and the geographic reach of the organization.
Culture Works continues to build on this collaborative legacy, seeking even better ways each year to serve as a cultural catalyst for the Dayton Region.
