Cultural and Heritage Alliance Uses Arts Council Grant to Support “Book Black Women Inc Presents”

[Fayetteville, NC] — Culture and Heritage Alliance announces support of BOOK BLACK WOMEN INC PRESENTS - a four-part series- with the help of a grant in the amount of $10,000.00 from the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County.

Culture and Heritage Alliance. (CHA), is a one-stop shop for arts and culture, offers engaging opportunities, and educational experiences to enrich, and expand the life of our community. Funding from the Art’s Council helps to make that happen!

Book Black Women Presents is a series of four events curated by Book Black Women Inc founder, Ayana Washington. Each event will focus on one element of art and black female artists will display their interpretation of said art. The objective of the Book Black Women Presents series is to make spaces for a marginalized group to present their art in creative ways and for the art to be embraced by the community.
Culture and Heritage Alliance’s Series Support grant from the Arts Council will help our agency for the entire season, to include Trap N Poetry, A Night of Jazz, Paint and Drank, and Ayana’s Open Mic!
Project Support Grants increase opportunities for access to arts, cultural, and historical programming in Cumberland County. The grants are awarded to nonprofit agencies, institutions of higher education, and municipal entities in Cumberland County that demonstrate financial and administrative stability.
