Advocate for Your Arts Community

What is ARTS Day?

On March 26 and 27, 2019, Arts NC will host its annual ARTS Day in Raleigh. ARTS Day is a unique opportunity to come together with other arts advocates and promote policies that sustain and grow public funding for the arts.

Scroll down to see how you can be a part of ARTS Day 2019 with ASC.

This year, we’re advocating for $1 for the ARTS: arts grants equal to $1 for every person in North Carolina. We invite you to share your story to help us reach our goal of providing access to the arts to all of North Carolina’s more than 10 million citizens.
