About the Luncheon

GALS events illuminate a commitment to enhancing the Winston-Salem community and assist in developing the next generation of creative entrepreneurial members of the community. Immerse yourself in a unique, curated 90-minute experience with the opportunity to interact with exceptionally talented students, faculty and renowned guest artists.  

Guest Artists

Guest Artists provide unparalleled opportunities for UNCSA students to interact with and learn from artists at the vanguard in their respective disciplines. Guest artist activities generally occur outside the classroom setting. They include, but are not limited to, master classes or lectures; dance or fight choreography; directing a play; instruction in a specialized technique/skill such as set, costume or lighting design; cinematography and film production. Guest artists also perform. Working directly with a guest artist serves to inspire, inform and enhance daily rigorous learning experiences for our students through authentic, hands on activities. Recent guest artists have included Gillian MurphyMary-Louise Parker and Peter Hedges, Helen Pickett, Dwana Smallwood and Joe Mantello.
