Triangle ArtWorks mission is to connect, support, promote and advocate for the visual and performing arts and creative industry in the Triangle. We are creating a center point and a platform for this community to be supported AS AN INDUSTRY. This platform and network makes it easier for this community to act as a business community, and also makes it easier for other segments of the business community to connect with the Triangle arts and creative industry as an industry group. ArtWorks will be able to use the platform and network to keep the community, as a whole, informed about issues that affect their businesses and to “sit at the table” for this community in economic development and other regional efforts, such as we are already doing with NC Tomorrow.
To build this platform, we need help. We need to create a Network of Partner businesses and organizations that believe in the power of the arts and creative industry and believe in what Triangle Artworks is doing and want to be a part of this work.
Who can be an ArtWorks Partner?
If you are a member of the visual and performing arts and creative industry in the Triangle, both for profit or non-profit, then you can be an ArtWorks Partner. If you are not a member of this industry, but understand the important role that this industry plays in our Region’s economy and quality of life and, therefore, want to support this industry, we also welcome you as a Partner. ArtWorks Partners will connect through ArtWorks to create a powerful and valuable network for this industry.
What will Partners Do?
Triangle ArtWorks simply cannot build this community network alone. ArtWorks will stand in the center as a clearing house, a convener and a center point. But there need to “spokes on the wheel” leading out from ArtWorks into the community. When you become an ArtWorks Partner, you are saying “Yes! We understand what ArtWorks is doing and we are IN!”
Specifically, ArtWorks Partners agree to support the ArtWorks’ mission in the following ways:
Our Partner Network will become the backbone for our work in bringing this Community together and supporting it. Specifically, we will be working to:
By making the arts and creative industry in the Triangle even more successful, we make the Triangle an even better place to live, work and locate a business. Join us in this important work!
