City of Atlanta Bureau of Cultural Affairs

The Bureau of Cultural Affairs (BCA) believes that assisting the local arts community financially as well as technically is an investment in the continued cultural growth of the city of Atlanta. At the same time, the Bureau recognizes that government resources are limited while demands for services are high. For this reason, the Bureau views its financial assistance role as that of a catalyst, helping to augment and strengthen a project?s or organizations overall base of support. BCA Contracts for Arts Services dollars, although modest, help to leverage private contributions to the arts by generating matching capital aid from government, foundation, corporate and other private endowments.
