About the Lab

The Arts Enterprise Lab -- a partnership between the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts and the Center for Creative Economy -- provides a self-directed learning environment and support network that challenges members of the Winston-Salem creative community to discover avenues of growth and change for their business, social enterprise or artistic practice. The 2019 cohort of the Arts Enterprise Lab will meet at the Creative Community Lab one evening a week for eight weeks beginning in early 2019, and again for six weeks in the fall. Veteran creative entrepreneurs serve as instructors and mentors, delivering curriculum that allow participants to learn about best practices, share experiences, and develop strategies for success in their creative enterprise. Lab members who complete the first round of programming may be eligible for a $1,000 seed grant to help move their enterprise forward. Applications are due on December 9, 2018, and the review committee will select the Lab cohort by December 20, 2018. For questions about the application, contact Nadiyah Quander at or 336-986-9574.
