For Creative Individuals & Organizations
We believe in building the capacity of creative individuals that live and work here, as well cultural organizations so they can do their best work.
It’s important to recognize those innovative individuals making creative leaps and bounds on Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s behalf. ASC Honors applauds exceptional commitment to culture for all.
Cato Excellence in Teaching Awards
We commend educators for enriching students through art, science or history. These teachers believe it is essential to incorporate culture into the foundation of academics.
Cato Lifetime Achievement in Teaching Award
We celebrate Pre-K-12 teachers whose lifetime efforts in sharing art, science and history with children have gone above and beyond.
The McColl Award, named in honor of Hugh and Jane McColl for their long-term commitment to the cultural community, is given every three years with the purpose of investing in the creation of a new work of art.
Workshops & Training
Cultural health, or lack thereof, is an indicator of organization and individual health. Choose to value professional development and take advantage of our numerous workshop and training opportunities. These programs are designed to promote sustainability and generate passion at every career level.
Community Supported Art
We’re all guilty of taking good things for granted, especially those people and places in our own backyard. That’s why the CSA program highlights the wealth of local talent in our region. Connecting local patrons with local artists has never been so fun.
