The Plan

In December 2018, Columbus City Council adopted a 5% ticket fee to provide access to arts programming for all Columbus neighborhoods.

The funds generated by a 5% ticket fee will enable GCAC to increase Columbus’ investment in cultural facilities’ capital needs, operating support for small and large organizations, festivals, arts and cultural events and programs, and grants for artists.

The funds generated by this ticket fee will enable GCAC to:

  • Protect and sustain Columbus’ arts and cultural sector and its economic impact.
  • Address needed capital investment in publicly owned facilities;
  • Provide funding for vital neighborhood projects;
  • Increase education and outreach opportunities for children; and
  • Expand free access for low-income people and families.
