Hancock County Arts Council (HCAC) was organized in 1996 by artists and friends with a common goal to promote art in Hancock County.

In 1999, Hancock County Arts Council registered as a nonprofit organization and this vision began, in partnership with the Greenfield Parks Department, to develop the arts community in Hancock County.

In 2014, Hancock County Arts signed their first lease at their current home. 20A N State Street, Greenfield, IN.

Every 5 years of service to the community, the HCA board of directors takes a step back to plan high-level and long-term for the future of the organization and how it would like to serve the arts community in Hancock County.

After a facilitated strategic planning process in 2023, the board of directors established a new vision to lead the organization into the future:


A vibrant community where arts and culture flourish and are widely embraced.

HCA envisions regular pop-up art events, a thriving performing arts community, prominent public art, high-quality gallery shows, and a community culture that appreciates these opportunities and supports local artists.

HCA will serve the following areas: visual, performing, and literary arts.

The board established a new mission statement to articulate HCA’s role in this work:


Promoting and Celebrating Arts for Hancock County.


The board of directors is excited by the progress that has been made and looks forward to playing a role in what the next years will bring. We are ready to expand, to grow and to develop the arts.
