About

The Florida Cultural Alliance (FCA) is a not-for-profit organization created in 1985 to develop an informed and engaged statewide non-partisan advocacy network among arts and culture organizations, individuals, artists, businesses and local, state, and federal policymakers and staff.  This network would strategically collaborate to increase state’s investment in Florida artists and arts and cultural organizations and elevate the industry, as a whole, to its rightful place as an integral element to the vibrancy of what is now the world’s 17th largest economy.
