About Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture & the Arts
In 1989, Tampa Bay Business Committee for the Arts (TBBCA) was founded by thirteen local businesses as an outgrowth of the Cultural Affairs Council of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and was the first Florida affiliate of the National Business Committee for the Arts, a national organization that was established in 1967 by David Rockefeller and a core group of America’s top business leaders.
The founding companies formed TBBCA to motivate and recognize the business community’s participation in the arts through strategic partnerships, leadership development, in-kind professional services and voluntarism.
In 2008, Americans for the Arts absorbed the National Business Committee for the Arts. Currently, there are twelve business committee affiliate organizations across the country (including TBBCA) that advocate and encourage business-arts alliances in their respective communities.
In 2009, the TBBCA changed its name to Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture & the Arts to better reflect the organization’s growth and the community’s changing needs. Today, we continue to build on the goals established by our founding companies and remain focused on our mission to unite Tampa Bay businesses to champion arts education and culture for a prosperous community.
A vibrant arts and culture scene can transform communities by creating jobs, stimulating urban renewal, enhancing tourism and attracting and retaining a skilled and educated workforce. Arts partnerships can also grow your business. According to a national survey by Americans for the Arts, 50% of businesses agree that supporting arts and culture has the potential to increase their bottom line through increased name recognition and new networking opportunities.
