Our Story

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization whose sole purpose is to offer citizens of Harlem and the surrounding area a quality experience with performing, visual and historical arts. “Embracing our Past, Celebrating our present, and Promoting the future with the arts.”


We formed the Harlem Arts Council in 2014 because we believe that art reflects community values, brings people together, creates a sense of belonging, creates a sense of pride, supports economic development, encourages expression and that art activities improve social well-being. HAC is currently housed at the Harlem Civics Center on Louisville Street.


Our civic and volunteer organization supports the arts in all its forms, including visual arts, performing arts, culinary arts, textile arts, communication arts, dance, and music in Harlem, Georgia and the surrounding area.

All persons interested in the arts in any form are eligible to become members.

​Join us for our monthly meeting held at the Harlem Civic Center, 375 N. Louisville St., Harlem.

We welcome anyone interested in Harlem Arts!
