Spark the Arts Grant Webinar
Cohosted by the NC African American Heritage Commission, American Indian Heritage Commission, and Arts Council
Friday, February 3, 12:00 p.m. via Zoom
The Spark the Arts grants aim to support arts providers as they reengage with the public through programming, marketing, rebuilding staff capacity, and facilitating safety protocols. This broad project category replaces Program Support for now and includes two application tracks: audience re-engagement and inclusion. Projects of the kind previously supported by the Arts Equity Project Grant and the Military and Veterans Healing Arts Grant categories are welcome within this category.

Enslaved Africans disembarked directly from the African Continent in several North Carolina communities. Since 2018, the “Africa to Carolina” initiative has shared and commemorated this history.

Join us for a conversation as we share information about this history and how it is being recognized and help us to explore how public art can be used to commemorate those persons who disembarked on North Carolina’s coast.
“Africa to Carolina” is an initiative of the N.C. African American Heritage Commission. For more information, visit our website or email us directly at
