Leland Parks And Recreation Earns State Award

By Christina Haley O'Neal, posted Dec 10, 2019
The town of Leland Parks and Recreation Department has received a 2019 Arts & Humanities Award from the N.C. Recreation and Parks Association for its involvement in The Black on Black Project.

The Leland Cultural Arts Center (LCAC) hosted a month of programming through the Raleigh-based project, according to the release. The programming was presented this spring at the LCAC through a grant from the N.C. Arts Council and matching funds from the town.

The Black on Black Project included an art exhibition, a screening of the documentary Wilmington on Fire and public discussions, as well as outreach to area students at local schools, stated the release.

“We have had more involvement by people of color in our programs since hosting the project and we hope that continues,” Julianne Scott, cultural arts manager, said in the release. “We plan to continue working with the local schools and continuing to reach out to our community with our sincere message of inclusion and our desire to encourage more diversity.”
