Durham Arts Council

DAC is a private nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts in Durham and the Triangle Region in North Carolina.

Founded in 1954, Allied Arts occupied several facilities before moving into the former City Hall on Morris Street in 1978, three years after changing its name to Durham Arts Council, Inc. In the mid 1980s, after a three year renovation, the city-owned building became DAC's long term home and, together with the adjacent Carolina Theatre, part of the Royall Center for the Arts in Downtown Durham.

North Carolina Arts Council

North Carolina is known throughout the world for its pottery traditions, literary legacy, Southern Appalachian music traditions, jazz, blues and gospel heritage, and an abundance of artists and arts institutions. Recognizing the state’s rich cultural climate, the Arts Council was established to strengthen North Carolina’s creativity, invention and prosperity. In 1967 the Arts Council published its first survey of the arts in the state. There were 17 local arts councils and 233 other arts organizations.

City of Durham

Durham is known as the City of Medicine because almost one in four Durham workers is employed in health care or a health-related industry. But that's not all.

Durham is a canvas covered with a unique cultural identity. There is a culture of art and creativity expressed through visuals, performances, and food. There is a palpable sense of history. And there are countless opportunities for nightlife, shopping, and exploring nature. There's so much that even locals are always finding new things to do. So drop by and get to know the Bull City.
