Side Arts Council is dedicated to encouraging the creativity and strength of our community. We work with neighbors, artists and local groups to sustain, improve and celebrate the areas where we live and work. We seek to enrich the lives of East Side residents by providing diverse arts and cultural experiences for families and individuals.

Some of ESAC’s arts programs focus on socio-economic concerns, while others embrace cultural or educational concerns. Young people are a high priority for ESAC, as is drawing together people from across cultural and economic boundaries to share in the pleasure and fellowship of the arts.
