Support ArtWorks During Our Month of “Gratitude and Giving”!

TAW_bar_tagDecember 1 kicks off a “Month of Gratitude and Giving” here at Triangle ArtWorks! It has been a remarkable and transformative year for us. We’ve come a long way since a group of volunteers began this organization in 2010.  It is time to take pride in what we have built, but also a hard look at what needs to be done to continue our work.

During this month, follow our blog and social media, as we look behind the scenes at ArtWorks to meet the hardworking people who have volunteered their time and skills to create this great organization.  

 

Help us Continue our Transformation!

Triangle downtown development and arts council leaders helped us design and roll out the Tool-Kit.

Much like a start-up, ArtWorks is at the developmental stage where it has proven idea, but needs “seed funding” from people who believe in – and are willing to invest in – what we are building, to take us to the next level.

This year, thanks to a grant from Duke Energy, we have begun work with a local nonprofit consultant who is working hand in hand with our Board of Directors to, basically, rebuild our Organization from the ground up. We are already seeing amazing results, but we need financial support to continue this important work.

This month, we are raising $10,000 to continue this transformation work in 2016.

Volunteers have spent 5 years building this amazing platform and network to recognize, value and support the arts as a business community in the five counties of the Triangle Region. This community is a vital component within the Creative Economy, the development of which many see as vital to the future of the Triangle region. Our work is intended to help the broader community – as well as the arts community itself – shift their view of the arts from “charity” to “business sector” and to ensure that this community has the resources and support it needs to continue to thrive.

ArtWorks’ work in the community gained a lot of momentum this year, including these highlights:

  • Our first office space at the vibrant Frontier in RTP;
  • A successful Open House, bringing the entire Triangle arts community together in our new space;
  • Increased recognition of the need for the platform and network we are building;
  • Kicked off convening work for the Triangle Theater community;
  • Worked with attorneys from across the region to create Law + ArtWorks, which hosts monthly practical legal seminars and is working on longer range projects to address legal needs of the arts community.
