Our Mission

The Woodlands Arts Council (TWAC), Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) organization whose mission is to provide cultural and educational enrichment opportunities that encourage, support, and promote the performing and visual arts for residents of Montgomery County and the neighboring region. Our primary goal is to establish and support meaningful programs in the performing and visual arts to create a strong and vital arts presence in the area. We believe the arts can open the doors of our minds, strengthen character, heal the body and foster an appreciation of other cultures.
