City of San Antonio Department for Culture and Creative Development
The Department for Culture & Creative Development is the local arts agency for the City of San Antonio funded by the hotel/motel tax and supported in part by the Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
DCCD’s mission is to provide leadership and support for arts organizations and individual artists, improving the quality of life for San Antonio Citizens and visitors alike.
Our vision is to be the recognized public agency leading the San Antonio creative environment.
The Department for Culture & Creative Development (DCCD) supports arts and culture in the community through programs tailored to help arts and cultural organizations, individual artists, community groups and the tourism industry.
DCCD has four main divisions: The Funding Division, The Strategic Initiative Division, Contract Administration Division and Public Art San Antonio (PASA.)
Helping to make San Antonio an exciting place to live and visit, DCCD promotes participation in arts and cultural activities by developing and marketing a wide range of activities and events. Through these and other research and planning programs, DCCD advocates for the growth and recognition of San Antonio’s creative industry.
