Arts & Culture

This area has been known for decades for its thriving creative music scene. Many people travel from around the region – and sometimes around the world – to attend shows at the Cat's Cradle and other venues in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Less famous, but also doing us proud, are visual artists, dancers, actors, and filmmakers around the Triangle. In fact, Chapel Hill was home to the first Flicker festival, which now takes place in ten cities around the world!

Haiku Contest for International Car Free Day!

To celebrate Car Free Day, The Village Project wants to hear about your experiences with cars and their ills or your thoughts on ways to go car-lite. But, we want it in a haiku!

Have you ever been in a town where walking, biking, or public transit is a viable way to get around on a regular basis? Do you miss that freedom?
Have you ever gone a day, week, month, or year without driving a car, but were still able to get around?
Does it strike you as silly that the Triangle doesn’t yet have a commuter rail system?

Chapel Hill 2020: Our Town, Our Vision

The Chapel Hill community and the Town Council have asked for a new Comprehensive Plan to reexamine the vision for Chapel Hill and to plan together for our community's future. the new planning and visioning document will create a framework for the community to guide the Town Council in managing Chapel Hill's future over the next 20 years.

Chapel Hill 2020 is a plan that involves Chapel Hill, every community, every race, every age, every culture, every corner.
What is in Chapel Hill 2020 will directly affect you -- your values, your ambitions, your family, your future. You have made Chapel Hill your town, and we want to hear from you.
