Participation in the arts fosters personal and social development, helping people develop new skills and connect with one another.
Because the arts positively impact schools and neighborhoods, we sustain numerous educational and community programs that bring the arts to Greater Wake County.
Our arts education programs support both students and educators. Artists in Schools brings professional teaching artists into Wake County schools to help students discover the arts. The Arts Integration Institute provides inspiration and practical hands-on techniques for teachers to integrate the arts into their classrooms.
United Arts curates and sponsors art exhibits in multiple Wake locations. We co-sponsor the National Arts Program® for county employees and their families, and the Piedmont Laureate Program, which annually names a writer to represent and promote the literary arts in a three-county region.
