The Arts, Culture and Historical Resources Department provides arts programming, to include visual and performing arts, which reaches all sectors of the community. It offers Savannah’s residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy a rich and varied cultural life through the arts. The department accomplishes this by administering the scope of services purchased from Savannah’s cultural agencies, producing and presenting classes, workshops, festivals, youth programs, exhibitions, and performances, providing technical assistance to cultural organizations, and marketing Savannah’s rich cultural offerings.  The Municipal Archives and Records Management division collects, manages, preserves and makes accessible records documenting the City’s history; administers the records management program and the City Records Center; and shares the City’s history with City employees, citizens and visitors through outreach activities.
