The Tennessee Arts Council, www.tn.gov/arts
The Tennessee Arts Commission was created in 1967 with a special mandate by the General Assembly to stimulate and encourage the presentation of performing, visual and literary arts throughout the state and to encourage public interest in the cultural heritage of Tennessee. Through a variety of programs, the Commission has encouraged excellence in artistic expression through the state's artists and arts organizations. That commitment has continued to expand through the years to ensure that the citizens of Tennessee have access to, and the opportunity to participate in the arts.

Tennessee Theatre Association, www.tn-theatre.com
The Tennessee Theatre Association was founded in 1968 with the aid of a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission. Two hundred and thirty-five people from every part of Tennessee met in Crossville on September 7 and 8 for the first conference, and the late Paul Crabtree was elected the first president.
Over the years the purpose of the organization has remained the same: the promotion of the highest standards of theatre throughout the State of Tennessee. To accomplish that purpose, the Association serves as a vehicle for communication through its newsletters and through its annual convention.
It provides members with workshops, programs and seminars and with the opportunity to meet, work with and learn from each other as well as from invited theatre professionals from other states. TTA also serves as a liaison between Tennessee, regional, and national theatre organizations.
Special Guest: Adriane Lenox Featuring Community Theatre and Secondary Schools Festivals, Theatre for Youth, 24-Hour Play Festival, SETC Screening Auditions, Design Competitions, Workshops, Networking Events and more!
Tennessee Music Education Association, www.tnmea.org
The arts are getting cut from state budgets across America. In Tennessee, we are fortunate to have an additional source of funding. The extra revenue we receive from specialty and personalized license plate sales has been key to our survival. More than 70% of the money used to fund the 800+ grants from the Tennessee Arts Commission last year was from the sale of these specialty license plates. Consequently,promoting specialty plate sales is one of the most important things you and your organization can do to ensure funding for the arts in Tennessee!
