Create a vibrant community through art

Located on the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina, Dare County Arts Council is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to encouraging the arts in Dare County through advocacy, enrichment and opportunity. Dare County Arts Council strongly believes that the arts are essential to the creation and sustenance of our community.

It takes a tremendous amount of resources to make this organization thrive, and we hope you consider making a gift to our endowment. DCAC's endowment is a fund set aside for the future. It provides a reliable pool of resources, year after year, for arts programming.  The Outer Banks Community Foundation manages Dare County Arts Council's endowment.

Every donation makes Arts Council a stronger, more vibrant force for creativity in our community. Each day, we strive to make DCAC a place for those artists, students and fans to find a home.
