The James River Council for the Arts and Humanities exists for three main goals: 

  • To reflect the cultural and creative landscape of Lynchburg and the surrounding area
  • To connect communities
  • To encourage development and support of the arts and humanities

The mission of the James River Council for the Arts & Humanities (JRCAH) is to cultivate relationships and resources critical to a thriving cultural community in Central Virginia through advocacy, marketing, publicity, networking, and collaboration. We are committed to inclusivity and transparency in our endeavors.

In short, we support public art with a purpose. (What is public art?)
