One of the primary goals in creating Triangle ArtWorks was to create a platform for the arts and design community to come together as a business community. Creating a center for this community, with a central organization, creates an entity that can represent the community in regional business and economic efforts – someone to sit at the table that represents the whole industry and not just one particular business or organization. We are thrilled to say that we are already serving in this role.
Triangle ArtWorks is now participating as an Advisory Committee member in the NC Tomorrow Initiative. This statewide effort is being run locally by Triangle J Council of Governments, a group bringing together leaders from the 7 counties in the Triangle Region to work on issues relevant to the region. … Read More

Come to Triangle ArtWorks Durham Mixer!
Triangle ArtWorks has been busy busy busy these last six months, as our work is really starting to take off. The word is getting out about what ArtWorks is doing, and what we are trying to do, and the “buzz” is building! But there are still many people who don’t know about us, or just want to learn more.
So, we are having a little get-together! The Carrack Modern Art in Durham has been kind enough to offer us their space for the event. If you have not been to the Carrack and seen what they are doing to support the arts community, then this is a great opportunity! … Read More

As the central resource for the visual and performing arts and creative industry in the Triangle, ArtWorks is working to make it easier to find information about job/work opportunities, as well as opportunities for networking and education. For a while now, we have been promoting, through social media, the most comprehensive list of jobs openings, calls for artists and other information to support your work. But, as with most social media…if you missed it, it was gone!
Now you can find this info aggregated on the site in our new Opportunities Section. Find it on our Home Page, below the Directory, Resource and other links.The information will be placed on the site directly from Twitter, as we do not have the staff at this point to create new entries. But you will be able to search this information by category. … Read More

Triangle ArtWorks is working with a Core Group of local arts leaders to create a Triangle Emerging Arts Leaders Group. The idea is to create a networking group of “young” arts administrators that will meet periodically for discussion and networking, with a goal of not only helping the Group’s members learn from each other and some discussion leaders, but also to facilitate collaboration between them and their organizations.

We here at ArtWorks will be taking a bit of time off starting today, through January 6. It has been a busy, productive year and we look forward to more great things for 2012!
Committees will continue their work setting up our ArtWorks NetWork of community partners, adding resources on the site, and spreading the word about what we are doing here at ArtWorks. Although we are working on sustainable funding, we are still a volunteer run organization, but it has been amazing to see the number of volunteers signing on this year to take on huge tasks for ArtWorks. As always, if you want to help, let us know! By bringing together and supporting this community, as the strong and important economic group that it is, we can make our community stronger and the entire Triangle region a better place to live and work. … Read More
