Do any programs in the area provide free or low-cost tickets for disadvantaged children to cultural events?

Ben Steelman

The short answer is no, according to Rhonda Bellamy, executive director of the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County. However, the arts council hopes to work on launching such a program with area arts groups in 2016, Bellamy said.

A good outlet in the meantime, Bellamy said, is DREAMS of Wilmington. The non-profit at 901 Fanning St. offers free, high-quality, after-school and summer classes, workshops and other programs in visual arts, music, dance and photography. For more information, phone DREAMS at 910-772-1501 or visit their website (click here.).
