Arts Council / ARTworks offers it ALL for the arts ... the performing arts, the visual arts, & the literary arts. They nurture our community through programs & workshops for adults, children & their resident artists. Their advocacy and communications for the arts throughout Beaufort County is all-encompassing. Their commitment to fiscal responsibility for the organization and its donors remains solid. It's been an honor to serve on this board and work with the staff over many years.
Review from Guidestar
Before I became a member of the board, I always enjoyed the atrs scene in Beaufort, which included various activities and events put on by the ACBC. So I was pleased to become a board member and become more actively involved in fundraising and helping out wherever I can. The arts are a very big part of Beaufort and the ACBC is definitely a leading organization when it comes promoting the arts in all forms.
My experience as a board member and friend of the Arts Council has been rewarding. The staff and directors are enthusiastic, experienced, and competent. ACBC directors and staff have kept me informed and involved in the Arts Council since the first moment we met, over three years ago. Volunteers and staff are genuinely interested in the organization, community, and artists supported by ACBC. Engaging the young professional community in ACBC events and as donors has proven challenging, but is an accomplishable goal.
This organization is awsome. Their passion for the arts is contagious and I like to be part of it. As a former educator, I used to integrate the arts in my classes and the children learn way more and faster. It is great to be around amazing artists and appreciate their art work. Thank you for all the work the staff at ArtsWork does! Never give up.
I attended the Arts Council summit and I was pleasantly pleased to see all of the concerned artists, art advocates,and community leaders that turned out to participate and give their support. The audience was separated into groups for brainstorming and then reported back to summarize main ideas needs. I was so proud of the way JW and Jenny lead the group and gave everyone a chance to speak. Claudette Humphrey.
The Arts Council of Beaufort County is an amazing non-profit that is committed to the success of the arts in Beaufort County. They offer a wide range of services such as classes & workshops for adults and children; business training for artists; affordable studio, gallery and theater space; community arts grants for artists, teachers, schools and arts organizations. They also work with other organizations to broaden the reach of the arts throughout our county. Most importantly, the Arts Council is fiscally responsible with the funds they recieve from donors and grants.
