Arts Grant Director
City of Raleigh - Office of Raleigh Arts
Raleigh, North Carolina

Sarah Corrin serves as the arts grant director for the City of Raleigh’s Office of Raleigh Arts, a local arts agency committed to a vision of the city as a community connected through arts and culture, where every person is empowered to lead the creative life they envision. With almost 30 years’ experience working for and with North Carolina nonprofit arts organizations, Corrin manages a funding program that distributes program and operating support to nonprofit organizations and provides capacity building programs. During her tenure, she developed the Arts Learning Community for Universal Access. This regional peer cohort focuses on increasing inclusion within arts organizations and is a joint project with the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County. Since the early 1990’s accessibility and inclusion have been through lines in Corrin’s career. Starting with Raleigh Little Theatre, she grew the theatre’s audio description program, developed an integrated theatre production program with bi-lingual ASL/English productions and casts of both hearing and Deaf actors, and oversaw the installation of the theatre’s first assistive listening system. A former board member for Arts Access, Raleigh’s arts and accessibility service organization, Corrin also served as executive director of Arts Together, a community arts school.
