Our organization, originally named the Findlay Area Arts Council, was founded in 1979 by a group of visionary community leaders. During its birth, the organization’s mission was to encourage and stimulate the practice and appreciation of the arts locally and statewide. The founders included Mrs. E. A. Graham, Mrs. F. F. Flowers, W. T. Maddock, Alex Baluck, Mrs. J.S. Dimling, Mrs. T. A. Buis, E. L. Heminger, Jerry Osborn, Doug Salveson, C. R. Brown.In 1998, the organization changed its name to The Arts Partnership of Greater Hancock County. The mission was modified to read: To provide, encourage and promote quality arts presentations, educational opportunities and entertainment.Although our organization has grown and changed over the years, the core of our existence has always been to provide arts opportunities that strengthen our community. Increasing the appreciation of art is still one of the goals The Arts Partnership strives to achieve.
The Arts Partnership offers a wide range of arts, education and entertainment opportunities each year. Through our programming and events, we strive to unify the community, provide cultural enrichment, and improve the quality of life for people in Findlay and Hancock County. We continually work to meet the ever-changing needs of our community through soliciting and utilizing feedback and involving community members in the planning of our programs.
“The mission of The Arts Partnership of Greater Hancock County is to provide, encourage and promote quality arts presentations, educational opportunities and entertainment in Findlay/Hancock County.”
