The mission of the Satanta Area Arts Council is to "act as a coordinating, educational, and service organization to foster, promote, encourage, and increase the knowledge, appreciation and practice of the arts in Satanta and the surrounding area".
The Satanta Area Arts Council's vast line-up of programming is funded primarily by membership dues. The remainder is made up in grant funds and donations.
To fulfill this purpose and provide cultural opportunities for our rural area, the arts council focuses on a wide variety of programming. In the past, performers ranging from ballet dancers to historical reenactors have been brought to Haskell County by the Satanta Area Arts Council.
Additionally, numerous programs for children have been funded by SAAC including a yearly performance by Wichita Children's Theater and a Kids' College event. Other exhibits and events are also provided.
