The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture is a people-powered department (not a government agency). We believe that art and culture are powerful and under-tapped resources for creating a more just, equitable, and vibrant world.  Learn more about the USDAC and read our Statement of Values, then join this act of collective imagination!
