The United Arts Council of Catawba County (UACCC), located in the beautiful foothills of North Carolina, seeks a visionary Executive Director to lead our organization to its next level.
UACCC, founded in 1960, is financially stable and has strong relationships with the community and with state and local governments. We conduct an annual United Arts Fund campaign, have strong grant-making systems in place, and work closely with the SALT (Science, Art, Literature Together) Block, the cultural heart of our county and where our offices are located. The Executive Director reports to and works closely with the Board of Directors. Learn more here.
The United Arts Council is one of the proud recipients of The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation Inclusive Public Art Grant. The project will tell the story of "The Untouchables" football team's legacy of victory in the 1960's. Story and project details here.
