Arts Council

Highlands Borough Arts Council (HBAC) is a community-based nonprofit arts organization. We are an independent registered 501(c)(3) with a core leadership team of six volunteers. As a relatively young organization, we balance grass roots initiatives with structured approaches.


We focus on leveraging the passion, creativity, and perspective of local artists, creatives, makers, art enthusiasts and local businesses to co-create and manage diverse events and programs accessible to all.

HBAC has a broad interpretation of art and creativity. We embrace both classically trained and self-taught creators of all ages and mediums. HBAC provides a common ground for differing political, social, economic and cultural ideologies to come together to share a common interest and experience. Creative venues enable these differing factions to meet in a neutral zone to transform and empower the community through the act of creation.
