Expressions of Hope & Healing of the Outer Banks Cancer Community is a project put together by Dare County Arts Council and The Outer Banks Hospital bringing free art workshops and artistic resources to community members who have been affected by cancer. The two organizations are constantly working together to ensure that anyone who has been touched by cancer in any capacity (cancer patients, their family members/friends, caretakers, cancer survivors and our local oncology healthcare professionals) can share their journey and experiences through the arts.
