The Brunswick Arts Council
In every vibrant, culturally active community, the arts are key to the quality of life and the health of economy. Thus the BAC was founded in 3.982 to bring artistic programs, shows, workshops, and exhibits to Brunswick County. The Brunswick Arts Council soon became the Designated Partner of the North Carolina Arts Council to assist other non-profit art organizations through its Grassroots funding program.
Today the Brunswick Arts Council outreach includes scholarships, grants for individual artists and groups, and enrichment programs for Brunswick County Schools. The History of BAC >
