The Arts Council’s Artists in Schools program offers subsidies – of 1/2 to 2/3 of artist fees! – to public and private schools in Cumberland County, including Fort Bragg.
The funds help cover artist residencies, assembly performances, workshops AND virtual/online engagements. Educational goals and standards are emphasized. 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.
