The Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts at the University of North Carolina School
of the Arts has launched the first Creative Community Lab in the Winston-Salem area
as part of its Artist Leadership Initiative to develop leaders, entrepreneurs and
innovators in the arts.
The Lab is a 2500-square-foot leased space in the historic Railroad Building on South
Liberty Street. This innovative facility will offer programmatic, office and “blue
sky” meeting space for Kenan Arts Research Fellows, members of the Arts Enterprise
Lab and Guest Artists of UNCSA, as well as invited community members and partner organizations.
The Lab will also house the Center for Creative Economy, allowing the two institutions to continue working in partnership to strengthen arts
enterprise in North Carolina.
