ARTworks Educational Outreach
UNCW's Office of the Arts serves thousands of K-12 students each year through the ARTworks initiative. ARTworks utilizes valuable campus and community partnerships with Watson College of Education and New Hanover County Schools to provide teachers and students free live performances, professional development
workshops and in-school artist residencies.
In addition to the Kennedy Center, the Office of Cultural Arts has forged meaningful and strategic relationships with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the North Carolina Arts Council and the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. These relationships have provided outreach and performance opportunities for more than 25,000 students and teachers in Southeast North Carolina.
