Established in 1981, this nonprofit volunteer organization is Brunswick County's primary arts information and funding source. Nonprofit arts funding is channeled to this group from the North Carolina Arts Council. With money received each year, the Brunswick Arts Council provides financial assistance to approximately 20 local nonprofit groups through the Grassroots Grant Program; sponsors community events; and sponsors the Brunswick County Art Show & Sale Exhibition. This funding provides assistance to individual artists and arts-related groups. The council partners with the Brunswick County Board of Education to provide arts-integrated programs to all county schools. This valuable resource for local arts information is available through the organization which maintains a website and a Facebook page, the Southport-Oak Island Chamber of Commerce, (910) 457-6964, and the Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, (800) 426-6644. Membership in the council is open to all interested citizens.
The Brunswick Arts Council offers a range of programs, including cultural symposiums, programs for the classroom, and more. Operating divisions include the Multicultural Programs Division, Student Art Education, Performing Arts, Literary Arts, Visual Arts and Grants and Development. Anyone interested in participating in an operating division is invited to attend a council meeting. Public attendance is invited as well.
