Welcome to the Kenan Institute for the Arts. We build capacity, cultivate arts leadership and incubate innovative ideas.
We hope you will explore our current and past projects, download our 20th Anniversary brochure and get to know our host institution, University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
We are a creative "think and do" tank committed to promoting creative leadership and innovation in the arts through our partnerships and initiatives. Over the last 20 years we have partnered with dozens of arts and arts education organizations and thousands of UNCSA students, alums, faculty and other stakeholders to expand the impact and value of the arts regionally and nationally.
We invite you to visit us virtually often to hear news of our newest ventures.
