ABOUT THE FINE ARTS COUNCIL OF TRUMBULL COUNTY
The Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County (FACT) was established in 1971 when six community organizations recognized the need for mutual support & coordination of the arts and cultural organizations. Our mission is “to improve the quality of life in Trumbull County, by fostering the arts.” FACT receives funding through corporate, foundation and individual donations.
FACT is always looking for volunteers and people willing to assist us in making the arts an integral part of everyday life in Trumbull County. If you’d like to carve pumpkins, greet people during our summer season or just help to spread the word, we can use your help.

ATTENTION INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS and Arts Organization Representatives
Please help us if you represent an arts organization or are an individual artist who performs or seeks to work in the region’s schools by completing the ANY GIVEN CHILD ARTS Survey.
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has chosen Warren, Ohio as the 20th site and first school district in Ohio for Ensuring the Arts for Any Given Child, a program that creates a long-range arts education plan for students in grades K-8. The program will incorporate existing resources of the Warren City Schools, local arts organizations, and the Kennedy Center to create a plan for arts education specific to the city.
Any Given Child seeks to bring access and equity to each student’s arts education, using a
model that combines the resources of the school district, local arts and community organizations, and the Kennedy Center. With the assistance of expert consultation services provided by Kennedy Center staff and consultants, community leaders develop a strategy for arts education that is tailor-made for the school district and community. Students Motivated by the Arts (SMARTS) will serve as the lead arts organization for Any Given Child Warren, with Executive Director Becky Keck as the coordinator. SMARTS has a long history in the Mahoning Valley as a leader in arts education.
The first phase of the program is the community’s comprehensive audit of existing arts education resources and needs assessment facilitated by Kennedy Center staff and consultants. Data collection will reveal what arts education resources currently exist and where the gaps are for students. Based on this information, the community creates a plan to bring more access to arts education for all K-8 students. The strategic planning process takes approximately nine months.
This survey is an intgral part of this process and you participation is an importnat part of the information gathering process.
