The Arts Council’s Artists in Schools program offers students arts and cultural experiences through artist residencies, assembly performances, workshops, AND virtual/online engagements. These educational and fun interdisciplinary programs are guided by vetted artists who design lessons that supplement educational standards.
We fund 1/2 of artist fees for performances and workshops and 2/3 for residencies to public and private schools in Cumberland County, including Fort Bragg.
Local, regional, and national artists of all disciplines submit applications to our program. Artist applications are screened by experts and highlight strong educational material, artistic value, and economic feasibility.
Artists In School is a program that shows students how to:
- Communicate a concept.
- Solve problems through the creative process.
- Explore the world through creative experiences.
School representatives may apply for funding for one or more programs each school year. School Application Deadline: FRIDAY - October 1, 2021
Please note: This is an application only and does not guarantee funding. Applications are reviewed and awards are awarded based on the availability of funds and artist selection.
