About our Regional Initiative

Thank you for supporting Big Night In for the Arts 2022, year two of a unique regional collaboration among four Triangle arts councils–United Arts, Chatham Arts Council, Durham Arts Council, and Orange County Arts Commission. The event will stream live on WRAL on March 10, 2022, feature performances by musician Ben Folds, Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Nnenna Freelon, poet Jaki Shelton Green, tap dancer Jabu Graybeal, and potter Mark Hewitt, address the impact of COVID-19 on the arts, celebrate the arts in our region, and highlight the missions of these four organizations that lead the Triangle's arts infrastructure. 

Supporters like you help make the arts happen in our region - the impact of Big Night In continues long after March 10, with funds raised earmarked to support local artists, arts organizations, and arts programming as we continue on a path of recovery from the pandemic.
