UNC's Process Series Presents
And So We Walked:
An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears

The Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts is a creative catalyst that encourages and supports the exploration and development of new knowledge to transform the way artists, organizations and communities approach their creative challenges.

We develop programming in three primary areas:

Artist Leadership
Educating artists as creative leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs to increase their capacity to contribute to our communities.

Arts and Society
Engaging UNCSA stakeholders along with our collaborators in interdisciplinary approaches to improving economic and social well being.

Career Pathways
Building strategic partnerships to develop more diverse and sustainable career paths in the arts sector and beyond.
