The Folklife Program at the North Carolina Arts Council and Duke Arts invite you to a free one-day gathering of emerging millennial traditional artists in the Piedmont. The Millennial Traditional Artists Project is an NEA-sponsored initiative of the North Carolina Arts Council, created to support the next generation of traditional artists across this state.

Do you work within a tradition? Does your art come from, or speak to, your community? You’re one of the folks the MTA project is here to serve!

We’re compiling an online directory of artists, surveying your needs, and organizing regional convenings to offer workshops on navigating the professional arts world. Last winter we held our first meeting in Western North Carolina, and this year we’re getting together in the Piedmont. Please join us at the Ruby for a day of get-togethers, networking opportunities, workshops, and information on arts resources in North Carolina. Admission is free; lunch included. You must RSVP to NCAC Folklife Director Sally Peterson at or text her at 919 949 5810 to reserve your spot.
