Innovative Arts Programs
Organized to foster and promote the growth, progress and general welfare
of the North Carolina Arts Council and its programs, the North Carolina
Arts Council Foundation supports innovative statewide endeavors that
build vibrant communities for future generations, attracting people who
want to live in, work in and visit the state.
The Foundation is a nonprofit charitable corporation incorporated to
support the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency located in
Raleigh, North Carolina, and to receive and administer gifts for such
purpose in a public-private partnership sustaining support for the arts
throughout the state.
The Creative State
The North Carolina Arts Council works to make North Carolina “The Creative State”
where a robust arts industry produces a creative economy, vibrant
communities, children prepared for the 21st century and lives filled
with discovery and learning. The Arts Council accomplishes this in
partnership with artists and arts organizations, other organizations
that use the arts to make their communities strong, and North
Carolinians – young and old – who enjoy and participate in the arts.
Invest in a Legacy
The North Carolina Arts Council has imagined and executed an innovative
vision for arts development that touches every corner of the state and
the arts are today regarded as one of North Carolina’s most durable and
productive assets. The Foundation works to build investment in this
legacy and develop expanded resources to allow the Arts Council to plan,
create, and support innovative programs and initiatives that will
continue to bring tangible and measurable public value.
