What is STARworks ?
STARworks is an arts-centered work community that promotes community and economic development by providing outstanding artistic educational programs and business ventures. We strive to engage the community with artwork and artists of the highest caliber. STARworks is a project of Central Park NC.
In rural areas, residents often live in cultural deserts. Too often access to the arts is limited to a narrow range of artistic vision, vernacular imagery, and craft styles. Through strategic partnerships with other artists, arts organizations, and businesses, STARworks has been working to increase the diversity of artistic experiences available by bringing nationally and internationally known artists for demonstrations, classes, lectures and to make new works of art. Our programs are targeted to professional makers, with additional programming for young adults and children.
