This is always a fun event, with lots of surprises and a big crowd. However, this year, it is important that we in the arts industry need to make a point to attend, as the event will be “celebrating individuals, businesses, and organizations whose contributions are making significant impact on the revitalization of the city center” Triangle ArtWorks and many Raleigh arts organizations are partnering with and being recognized by DRA on this event. … Read More

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. … Read More

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
