Opportunities to Dream

We believe the arts are for everyone, regardless of major, course of study, background or skill level. We know that creative expression fosters open and healthy communities and that the impact of experiential learning is profound and lasting.

Arts Everywhere

    Now, we look for opportunities to deepen our programs and broaden our reach, to amplify the world-class teaching in Carolina’s classrooms, to curate thought-provoking exhibitions and to commission conversation-starting performances. With your support, we will invest in creative practice at the highest level.
