The North Dakota State Legislature created the North Dakota Council on the Arts “to ensure that the role of the arts in the life of our communities will continue to grow and will play an evermore significant part in the welfare and educational experience of our citizens.” As a state arts agency, NDCA's role is to support creators, art providers, and participants. Grants, convening, education, and partnerships are used to seed new ideas and activity, and build resilient capacity for the long-term. Members serve one 5-year term but may be reappointed after a 1-year period following the expiration of his/her term. Members are broadly representative of all fields of the performing and fine arts. The governor designates a Chair who serves at the pleasure of the governor.
