A healthy arts scene stimulates our minds and souls.
Organized in 1969, the Aberdeen Area Arts Council (AAAC) is funded through memberships, the City of Aberdeen, grants from the SD Arts Council, and other grants.
A 501c(3) organization, the AAAC works to provide varied programming each year. In addition to programming, the AAAC works to promote arts events and organizations in Aberdeen by providing a time each month on a local radio show to discuss the upcoming events, arranging full page arts ads in the local newspaper and facilitating meetings of those involved in the arts in Aberdeen. The council works closely with South Dakotans for the Arts to keep current on arts advocacy issues
