About the Pamlico Arts Council
We have a long history of promoting the arts in all its forms. And we have a lot of fun doing it.
The mission of Pamlico Arts Council (PAC) is to promote, sponsor, and advocate the diversity and growth of all the creative arts in Pamlico County – visual, performing, and literary; to promote the creative arts as vital to the economic growth of Pamlico County; to support and advocate creative arts programs in the schools of Pamlico County; to preserve the cultural heritage of Pamlico County; and to raise funds to support these efforts. The PAC has placed great emphasis on bringing the arts to the schools and providing new initiatives county-wide.
The Pamlico County Arts Council (dba Pamlico Arts Council) was founded in 1977 in Pamlico County. The roots of our early heritage are still visible today. Currently, the council is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors who are also responsible for bringing such amazing event experiences to our community, such as the Dragon Burn, Pirate Jam, and so much more.
We support art projects, art organizations, and programs through memberships and fundraisers. Pamlico Arts Council receives funding from the North Carolina Arts Council.
We promote a broad spectrum of visual, performing, and literary arts. Pamlico Arts Council supports "Arts in Education" programs in our public and charter schools. We also help to promote and preserve the cultural heritage of our region. Pamlico Arts Council recognizes and advocates that art can produce a more vital economy.
