“In elementary schools, senior centers, museums, concert halls and community centers, more than 9 million people participated in projects funded by the Arts Council last year,” Mary B.

The Arts Council, a division of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources, www.ncculture.com, serves as an economic catalyst, investing in local communities and offering technical assistance to artists and organizations. The majority of Arts Council funding comes from the N.C. General Assembly, while some comes from the National Endowment for the Arts.
