#KeepOnslowCreative is more than a hashtag, it’s a call to action for members of our community to join with us to support the arts here in Onslow County.

Supporting artists, art education, and arts experiences here in Onslow County mean you are investing in our community’s cultural diversity, economic health, and educational growth.

As part of the Creative Forces: NEA Military Healing Arts Network , we are also learning that the arts can be powerful avenue for healthy living. The members of our Creative Forces Open Studio share with us that being creative on a regular basis in a supportive and non-judgemental community has a positive impact on their lives.
