Artists Sought for Festival

The Fifth Annual Youth Arts Festival at East Carolina University is seeking artists to participate in its annual show that will be held on the ECU campus on April 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The goal of the festival is to promote the visual and performing arts to the children of our region. Artists from the university community, Greenville, the region and other states will present their work to the youth of Pitt County and Eastern North Carolina.

Some artists showcase their talents and demonstrate the media they work in, while others work with the children doing hands-on projects. The festival is geared towards elementary and middle school children, but all residents of Pitt County and the surrounding area are welcome, free of charge. The festival strives to feature multi-cultural and multi-ethnic artists.

Artists are not charged booth fees and no commission is taken on any work that is sold. However, the festival is not focused on being a sales event; it is geared towards teaching children and their families about the wonderfully diverse and creative possibilities available in our region.

Contact Dindy Reich, coordinator of the Youth Arts Festival, at reichd@ecu.edu or 328-5749 for more information or to sign up to participate at this event.
