The Bucknell Arts Council is a coalition of the following following arts departments, organizations, concentrations, and centers: Art & Art History, Creative Writing, Film/Media Studies, the Griot Institute for Africana Studies, Music, Samek Art Gallery, Stadler Center for Poetry, Theatre & Dance, the Weis Center for the Performing Arts, the University Arts Coordinator and the Associate Dean of Arts & Humanities.

One of the primary goals of the Bucknell Arts Council is to support artistic creation on the part of students. To that end, we offer Student Arts and Creativity Grants to promote artistic and creative work or to support endeavors related to such work.
