The Arts Council of Wayne County will have a free arts advocacy workshop Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

"Economic conditions of the past two years changed life as we knew it, and through it all, the arts have been essential to sustaining community life and in positioning creativity as necessary for economic recovery and a global economy," said Arts Council director Sarah Merritt.

"But in order for the arts to thrive, individuals must join together in a common message of arts value."

ARTS North Carolina are presenting workshops throughout the state to explore how advocacy is "mission critical" to grow arts support. Executive director Karen Wells and ARTS North Carolina board members will present the workshop on how to navigate local and state government resources.
