Austin is the nation’s fastest growing large city and our creative sector is a proven cornerstone of that growth. Nearly 1 out of 5 jobs in Austin are in the creative industries. As Austin has grown, the ACA has expanded its programs in response. The ACA now fiscally sponsors projects that present over 200 performances and cultural events each year. We are the leading civic advocate for the creative community, working with government and business leaders to secure funding for the creative sector and ensure that the arts are a strong voice in the discussion about Austin’s future.
