About Arts Council
Arts Council of Pakistan Karachi (آرٹس کونسل آف پاکستان کراچی) , a non-profit organization passionately dedicated to promoting performing and fine arts throughout the country. Offering state-of-the-art entertainment opportunities for all segments of society while fostering peace and artistic professionalism through a diverse range of events, including theatre, dance, music academies, literary conferences, creative endeavors, and competitive talent showcases.
As the first established organization devoted to supporting the Arts in Pakistan since 1954, Arts Council of Pakistan, Karachi brings together a remarkable ensemble of social justice and human rights activists, exceptional artists, and diverse performers. Each year, we host over 500 events, actively supporting various social movements, women’s empowerment, and artistic freedom. Our commitment extends beyond just hosting events; we have successfully established numerous socio-cultural and educational initiatives for the youth of our nation, bringing attention to important social justice issues.
Art lovers can experience a variety of formal and informal artistic events at Arts Council, including the Amphitheatre, proscenium halls, studios, conference halls, art galleries, libraries, and literary publications.
We take responsibility for ourselves to nurture talented individuals across the country. Our fine arts, music, dance, and theatre academies, namely the Arts Council Institute of Arts and Crafts (ACIAC) and Arts Council Institute of Performing Arts (ACIPA) play a crucial role in polishing and empowering individuals.
We are not only about promoting the arts but also about giving back to society. Through our charity organization, ACP Welfare, we actively engage in fundraising and philanthropic endeavors, providing aid and support during natural disasters and other misfortunes.
