ACANSA exists as a visual and performing arts festival dedicated to building a more dynamic and engaging community through the arts and enriching the cultural vitality of the region. By fostering creative collaborations among artists, patrons, businesses, and community institutions, we facilitate the creation and presentation of more compelling art that encourages public dialogue, economic innovation, exposes people to a wider array of artistic experiences, and makes our community a stronger and more vibrant place to live.

ACANSA celebrated its fourth year earlier this fall, Sept. 20-24. The festival creates synergy by celebrating the culture of art in central Arkansas with works by established and emerging artists showcased in our theaters, historical venues, houses of worship and outdoor spaces.


The key to the success of the ACANSA Arts Festival is our generous donors and volunteers.

  • ACANSA relies 100 percent on donations from the community and we are always looking for new businesses and individuals who would be interested in supporting ACANSA with a gift.
  • We also have a great need for volunteers to help serve on one of our many committees, such as marketing or education.
  • Finally, we need you to support ACANSA by attending the festival in 2018!
