About Us

The Cultural Arts Center is a non-profit organization established in May 2002 to connect the Arts to our Community. Housed in the old Southside Elementary School, the Center has been renovated to accommodate various arts organizations in the Wiregrass, providing a venue for talented artists to gather and perform, and a home for providing exposure to the arts to underserved children and seniors. These organizations through their performances, classes, and workshops help to enrich the lives of the citizens of Dothan and the surrounding communities.

The Center is home to the Southeast Alabama Community Theatre, Tri-State Community Orchestra, Wiregrass Youth Symphony,  Providence Christian School Drama departments, Spark Theater Company and the SAFE Program.

The Center is funded through generous contributions of individuals and businesses in the community, fundraising events, grants and through some earmarked funding by the City of Dothan for utilities and maintenance of this 90+ year old building. Direct services to underserved children and seniors are provided by grants from a variety of local, state, and community foundations and are marked to provide after school and summer camps, workshops and classes in the arts at beginner levels and at various school settings.  The Center has enriched more than 6,500 children to many different arts disciplines, and are partners with the Dothan City School system and Headland Elementary School to provide arts with academics during the school day.
