Things to do in Charlotte, NC- Events in Charlotte

Creative Yatra gives you a significant opportunity to spend your time wisely and creatively by participating in North Carolina’s some of the best happenings through the Charlotte Art Weekly edition 7. From hundreds of events this week we have curated for you some really interesting musicals, performing arts gatherings, fine art workshops, film festivals, magic shows, humorous performances, and various other innovative programs. Make the best of this week through CAW7, and give a missed call at 7228-02-7228 to get a copy of CAW personally on your mobile every week.

The reason why we select an achiever every week for our Art Weekly is to make sure that we not only appreciate the creations but also the creators, who spent their almost entire lifetime towards creativity passionately. This week we are inspired by the contribution of Patrick McCauley, an American journalist who served the longest tenure as an editor at The Huntsville Times, Alabama. Born in Alexandria in 1927, McCauley served as the editor of the daily from 1966 to 1994 and was formerly employed with The New Orleans Times- Picayune. He has drafted two books during his career, With all Deliberate Speed and Southern Schools: Progress and Problem, and has witnessed historically significant events including the Apollo I capsule fire in 1967.
