The ACCC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage and support the development, promotion, and expansion of the arts in Carteret County.
We are the Designated County Partner of the North Carolina Arts Council for Carteret County, the local Council responsible for managing and sub-granting Grassroots Arts Program funds for local arts programming. Through the Grassroots program, local nonprofit art associations obtain funding to bring the arts to the county.
Grassroots Arts grantees in recent years have included: The American Music Festival, The History Place, Friends of the Down East Library, The Crystal Coast Choral Society, The Boys and Girls Club of Coastal Carolina, Broad Street Clinic, The Carteret Chorale, Carteret Community Theatre, The Sunshine Band, Carolina Artists Studio, Beaufort Sister Cities, and The Down East Folk Arts Society.
The Arts Council of Carteret County employs no staff, therefore we do not have a physical office or location. All efforts of ACCC are accomplished through the work of our volunteer Board of Directors.
