WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

            The Anson County Arts Council is a catalyst that reaches out to the entire community through local, regional and national programs that include theatre, music, dance, visual art, creative writing and poetry, art exhibitions, special events and festivals.  Cultural and educational experiences are available to all ages with special emphasis placed on children, youth and those who may have had little previous involvement with art and cultural activities.  Local artists are encouraged to showcase their art forms in our gallery.

            We believe the arts are for everyone in Anson County and the surrounding area.  Our goal is to entertain, educate and enhance our local economy through the medium of the Arts.


 

HOW WE OPERATE

            The Anson County Arts Council is a non-profit organization, established in 1978 by local art enthusiasts to enrich the cultural life of Anson County citizens.  Many of our projects are supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, with funding from the state of North Carolina and the National Endowment for the arts, plus funds from foundations, grants, memberships and fund raisers.  In addition to the monetary support, many local volunteers contribute their time and effort to insure our success.

 

PROGRAMS PROVIDED THROUGH THE ARTS COUNCIL

            Each year the Anson County Arts Council provides a variety of programs for our county.  Some of these include Arts & Heritage Jazzy Night, Pottery, Bowling for the Arts, Golf Tournament, Arts Programs in the Schools, October People Fest, Anson Theater Project, and many more.


 

 

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

            The mission of the Anson County Arts Council is to enrich the cultural lives of the people in Anson County by nurturing and supporting excellence in the arts, promoting, presenting and encouraging educational activities, and increasing the community’s awareness and appreciation for the arts.
