ARTS Day 2014
Save the Date – May 20 & 21, 2014 – Raleigh
The Conference Day, will feature Dan Heath, who with his brother Chip wrote the New York Times best seller, Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard. In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline. All two day registrants will receive a copy of Switch. To check out other publications and more on the Heath Brothers, go to http://heathbrothers.com/
The Conference Day on May 20 will be followed by The North Carolina Folk Heritage Awards, honoring five distinguished North Carolinians. Since 1989, the North Carolina Heritage Award has honored the folk artists of the state, deepening awareness of the stories, music, and artistry that comprise our rich and diverse cultural traditions.

May 21 is North Carolina’s traditional Legislative Day, and we will follow up on the successes of the 2013 Session by building and strengthening relationships that resulted in NCAC grants stabilization and an arts credit requirement passing the House.
So PLEASE mark your calendars, change meetings, ink it in, and get yourself to Raleigh in May. The “best” is yet to come.
