Big Night In For the Arts

Big Night In for the Arts was not just BIG, it was HUGE! Two weeks ago, 35,000 viewers tuned in to WRAL-TV to celebrate the arts. With the help of 600 corporate sponsors and individual donors, Big Night In for the Arts raised more than $350,000—with more than $31,000 designated for Chatham County! The support of generous community members will help the arts industry of the Triangle begin a path to recovery post-pandemic. These proceeds will fund arts programming, initiatives for equity in the arts, and arts relief efforts.

This event represents the first time arts councils from Chatham, Durham, Orange, and Wake Counties joined forces to enlist support for the arts through a live event. We are so grateful for the support of our communities and look forward to putting these vital dollars to use to ensure the arts in the Triangle will survive and thrive long after this pandemic has lifted.
