Arts Council of Wilmington

October is National Arts & Humanities Month. Creative conversations are taking place around the country on the impact of arts in local communities. Here in the Cape Fear region, the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County is gathering public input during its Ears on the Arts listening tour. WHQR’s Isabelle Shepherd sat down with Rhonda Bellamy, Executive Director of the Arts Council, to learn more about these events.
