The Mission of the Forum

The mission of the Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts, Inc., is to promote the appreciation of and involvement in the performing arts on the Outer Banks and in nearby areas through the presentation of an annual affordable series of concerts by diverse artists, integrated with activities of other community organizations.

The Forum strongly supports racial and cultural inclusion, provides opportunities for youth to participate in the arts, and encourages arts education in the community. The Forum complies with ADA accessibility requirements and considers other special needs of its audience to the extent possible within the physical constraints of its venue.
