Arts on the Hill

Arts on the Hill at Dix Park, presented by Raleigh Film and Art Festival, strengthens community ties through film, spoken word poetry and music with North Carolina roots. Play On Words is a showcase spotlighting the gifted filmmakers, writers and poets of the Triangle!

This partnership with Dix Park will give local, regional, and up-and-coming artists a platform to develop their talents and showcase their work.

This program is free to the public thanks to Dix Park Conservancy donors.
