Arts & Culture in Seminole County - Seminole Cultural Arts Council (SCAC), a 501(c)3 non-profit representing Art & Cultural resources, provides greater access for more residents and visitors to experience diverse local arts and culture offerings. Formed in 1994, SCAC is best known as a source of funding for local arts and culture agencies and activities.
