CREATE Conway Inc. is supported in part by the SC Arts Commission, the National Endowment of the Arts, the Waccamaw Community Foundation, the City of Conway, CREATE! memberships and public donations.
OUR MISSION IS TO BUILD AN ARTISTICALLY VIBRANT COMMUNITY BY SUPPORTING REGIONAL ARTISTS AND PROMOTING PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IN THE ARTS.
A thriving cultural scene is good for the economy and helps to build a prosperous community. The arts can attract visitors who not only spend their money on the events themselves, but also contribute to Conway’s economy by dining in restaurants, lodging in hotels and bed & breakfasts, and purchasing gifts and services in our community.
We initiate programs that are designed to foster arts and culture and tap into the resulting economic benefits.
