The North Carolina Arts Council celebrated their 50 Year Anniversary in 2017. Brunswick Arts Council was established in 1981 to serve the residents in Brunswick County by promoting the ARTS in all areas. The BAC has been the Designated Partner for the NCAC for many years and hopes to continue in that role with the help of the residents and Brunswick County government.
Interested parties are encouraged to visit the BAC’s website at www.brunswickartscouncil.org and the NCAC website www.ncac.org for more information on supporting the arts and becoming involved as a volunteer.
NOTE: This post has been edited to correct an error. The post originally stated that Associated Artists of Southport was a recipient of a Grassroots Grant. They had not applied and therefore, did not receive a grant. Brunswick Community College – Southport Center has been added to the recipient list.
