Logo Use and Recognition

Arts Council & National Endowment for the Arts Logo Use

Grants from the N.C. Arts Council are one of the many ways we invest in sustaining and advancing one of the most diverse and widespread networks of arts organizations in the country.

As an organization funded by the N.C. Arts Council you create and sustain innovative arts programs that contribute to quality of life and to community vitality. Additionally, you orchestrate critical resources for schools in providing arts experiences in and out of the classroom that enhance student learning.

To recognize the investment by the North Carolina General Assembly into our Grassroots Arts Program, State Arts Resources, Program Support, Arts in Education, Outreach Program, Regional Artist Project Grants, Statewide Service Organizations, and Organizational Development grant programs ALL recipients are required to display the North Carolina Arts Council logo.

The N.C. Arts Council logo must be prominently displayed on-site and in all publicity and printed materials. You are welcome to display the NEA logo at any time, but if the source of funds on your grant says “federal funds,” you must display the NEA logo.

Press Release and Printed Materials Boilerplate

Sample Press Release

 

.pdf (download)

The boilerplate below can be used to describe the North Carolina Arts Council in many formats, such as in printed programs and signage. This statement should be used at the end of press releases and in other printed materials for any program or project that is supported with funds from the North Carolina Arts Council. When you write your press release, add a similar paragraph about your group at the end. Media professionals are accustomed to seeing two such paragraphs at the end of any news release discussing a joint effort between two organizations.

The North Carolina Arts Council works to make North Carolina The Creative State where a robust arts industry produces a creative economy, vibrant communities, children prepared for the 21st century and lives filled with discovery and learning. The Arts Council accomplishes this in partnership with artists and arts organizations, other organizations that use the arts to make their communities stronger and North Carolinians—young and old—who enjoy and participate in the arts. The Arts Council is a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.

North Carolina has long been recognized for rich traditions in crafts, literature, historical drama, and music. Since 1964, the N.C. Arts Council has worked to strengthen North Carolina’s creativity, invention, and prosperity through its four core functions: creating a strong and efficient arts infrastructure across North Carolina; planning and implementing economic development initiatives; educating our young people; and researching the impact of the arts on our state. ncarts.org
