Introducing Spark the Arts

North Carolina Arts Council

Thursday, June 24, 2021

As our state and nation turn a corner in the pandemic, we are looking to the future. We know that North Carolina’s recovery from the pandemic depends on the arts, just as its endurance of it did. What would the past 15 months have looked like for you without books, music, and movies?
The songs we make and sing together, the dances we dance, the stories we see ourselves in on screens, canvases, or pages lift our spirits. They bring us together. They help us grow.
Vitality. Fellowship. Healing. These are the qualities the arts spark, and they are what North Carolina needs to rebuild its economy and emerge resiliently from the pandemic. This is why we’ve created Spark the Arts, a statewide campaign to inspire public participation in the arts across North Carolina.
