The Sampson Arts Council, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation chartered in 1973 under the laws of the State of North Carolina.
The mission of the Sampson Arts Council is to enrich the cultural lives of the citizens of Sampson County by nurturing and supporting excellence in the arts; promoting, presenting and encouraging educational activities; and otherwise enhancing the growth and appreciation of the visual, literary and performing arts.

Through the years, the Sampson Arts Council has helped bring the Durham Symphony to the community for an annual Christmas Pops Concert, and it has given support to the Class Act Series to help expose the students of Sampson County to quality arts programming. The Council reaches out to local artists by sponsoring shows and contests, and it annually awards The Lois Weaver Drama Scholarship to a student from our county planning to pursue an education in the arts.
