Tomorrow, there are two great workshops being held. The first is being hosted by the Arts Commission. The workshop is aimed at non-profit organizations that are interested in applying for a 2011-2012 arts grant from the City. The workshop will review grant guidelines, application process, and the legal and financial requirements of grant recipients.
We have a great system with our Arts Grants Programs, and since 1989, more than $19 million has been distributed to qualifying organizations! The workshop will be held on December 2, from 8:30am to 1:00pm at the Urban Design Center, located at 133 Fayetteville Street.

The second workshop will focus on the future of New Bern Avenue. Since New Bern Avenue is one of Raleigh's most heavily used corridors, and the workshop will focus on the portion between Swain Street and Wake Medical Center. Discussion will center on ways to improve New Bern Avenue, specifically through support of pedestrian, bicycle, and transit use along the corridor, and economic development in the area.
The workshop will be held from 7:00 to 9:00pm at Milner Memorial Presbyterian Church, located at 1950 New Bern Avenue. For more information, please click here.
