Berks Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to cultivate, promote, and support the arts in our community through collaboration, education, and presentation.

Berks Arts Council has been promoting the arts in Berks County since 1969, when a group of local volunteer artists and arts patrons formed an umbrella arts organization to serve the Greater Reading Community.

Berks Arts Council receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
