The Van Zandt Arts & Cultural District Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization supporting tourism and education opportunities in the southeast corner of Van Zandt County — a distinctive arts and cultural sector of the county that includes Edom, Van, and Ben Wheeler, as well as the Van school district. Our mission is to enhance and promote the value of the district’s creative and economic life by engaging artistic, cultural, educational, and commercial neighbors through programs, events, and initiatives. More tourism opportunities and arts education means better communities for residents and future generations.

NOTE: We have a vacant director position open and need to fill preferably with a Van ISD person to help keep our communications flowing well with the school. The right person should have a passion for the arts and how they positively affect children's lives. If you are interested or know someone who is, please contact P.A. Geddie, (903) 312-9556 or email We meet six times per year.
