Founded in 1972, the Beaufort County Arts Council, known as Arts of the Pamlico, has been a part of the community for 50 years.

Our goal is to empower our entire community including our artists and arts organizations by supporting creativity, nurturing collaboration, and presenting performances, exhibits, and educational opportunities for all ages.

Membership

A strong and vibrant arts scene is a powerful indicator of a thriving community. When you join the Arts council, you are building that community, and giving the gift of creativity to all.

The Historic Turnage Theatre

In 1996, a group of Beaufort County residents founded the Turnage Theatre Foundation and began the process of resurrecting this incredible venue built in 1913. In 2013, the Beaufort County Arts Council purchased the complex, and uses it to further our mission to promote arts in our region. Today the Turnage is alive with music, theatre, dance, fine art, photography, poetry readings, youth classes, and so much more.
