What is Near Southside Arts?

It's an experience.

Near Southside Arts is a community-led effort to foster and celebrate the creative assets of Fort Worth’s Near Southside. We are a vibrant and diverse community exploring, discovering and connecting unique and personalized experiences. Our specially-designated ecosystem supports all manners of creative pursuit. Your people are here.

Ignite recognition of Near Southside as the focal point of creativity and cultural expression.

The Near Southside Arts vision – our reason for being – is to be the focal point of creative expression in Fort Worth. It is a highly inspirational and aspirational brand vision, and one that is fitting given the profound impact we are capable of making. As an organization, we believe there is no pursuit more important than this one, because we believe the work we do–now and in the future–assists our artistic community to accomplish this status.

We have set out be recognized as a designated cultural district, but in truth, we always have been!

We want to set our sights on what matters - our people. Here are the goals we're dedicated to achieve:
  • Accelerate economic growth
  • Strengthen and expand our creative class
  • Expand and diversify cultural experiences
  • Strengthen district identity and appeal through placemaking
  • Improve access & mobility
  • Attract local, regional, and national visitors
  • Provide housing for all
  • Preserve and strengthen historic character & cultural heritage
  • Engage the Near Southside community in all initiatives and events
  • Proactively support diversity, equity & inclusion
