The IACA is a non-profit organization working to ensure that Carolina Beach and Kure Beach,

Pleasure Island, have a vibrant, vital arts environment.

Our mission is to promote awareness, understanding and appreciation of the literary, visual and performing arts in the island community, in order to enhance the quality of life in our area.

Our ongoing goals are to champion the arts in Pleasure Island, to support practicing artists and local art organizations, to encourage economic development through the arts, and to facilitate the growth of our community into a regional arts destination.

The IACA welcomes members who will support the organization's goals through participation in developing new programs, raising funds, and implementing high quality events. We are seeking members for committees and volunteers for events. Please sign up for the area that you want to work in. Your support is greatly appreciated.
