Organizational Profile

The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council formed as a merger of ProArts and the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Alliance in 2005. Initially a grassroots collaboration of arts organizations committed to driving shared resources and political will, the Arts Council was created from a recognized need of the arts community to advance its shared interests and growth. Over the past 17 years, the Arts Council has expanded to offer an array of services and resources to help arts organizations and individual artists build stronger foundations, while serving as the region’s authority on arts and culture for the political and business sectors.

GPAC has cultivated important relationships with city, state, and federal partners and sponsors to ensure support for the region’s creative sector as a contributing industry. GPAC operates on an annual budget just over $2 Million and is governed by a 22-member Board of Directors composed of arts professionals, advocates, and community volunteers within the greater Pittsburgh area.

Do We Have Free Will? (And How Does It Shape Our Identity?)
