Behind the Scenes @ ArtWorks – Cindy Honickman & ArtWorks Board

This month, we are opening the doors and inviting everyone in to see behind the scenes at Triangle ArtWorks. Meet the people that helped us get off the ground in 2010 and those working hard today to keep us running. Learn why they are giving their time and talents to build this Organization to support you – the Triangle Arts Community.   Then support their work with a Donation to Triangle ArtWorks

Why are you willing to give your time/talents to support Triangle ArtWorks

“As a small business owner, there are certain times throughout the year when I have more free time available in my schedule. During these periods, I enjoy giving my time to non-profits where I really feel a connection to their mission.

Why do you think that Triangle ArtWorks is important for the Triangle arts community and the Triangle itself. 

“Through WAKA, I am building a community of young professionals and those young at heart who want to enjoy sports, explore local businesses and events, and grow their social circles. Triangle ArtWorks is building a community of people in the arts industry who can support one another in their endeavors. Everyone involved needs a different kind of help from knowing where art can be showcased, to getting the word out about classes or even just learning how to meet the right people. Triangle ArtWorks is reaching out and connecting these people to the right resources. I am very proud to work with an organization that is shaping the community in such an impactful way, one artist at a time.”

ArtWorks was built 5 years ago by volunteers and still run entirely by volunteers. This year, Triangle ArtWorks received a capacity building grant from Duke Energy to begin the work to move us beyond our “all-volunteer” status.  The Duke grant has enabled us to bring on expert guidance from local consultant, Maggie Clay Love.  But its ArtWorks current Board of Directors that is rising to the challenge and doing what’s needed to move this Organization to the next level … through lots of meetings, hard work and strategic thinking.  We are incredibly grateful to have such a strong and committed Board of Directors guiding us through this important year.  Thanks to them all.

So many volunteers are working hard to make the Triangle’s arts community stronger.  Please support their work with a donation.  This week, your donation will be doubled in our Matching Challenge! DONATE HERE!
