NCMA Artist Innovation Mentorship (NCMA AIM)
With pilot funding from the Anonymous Trust and the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, this regional after-school outreach program is designed to bring artists from eastern North Carolina communities into structured six-week programs with area youth. NCMA AIM uses creative youth development strategies to provide access to materials, create open-ended process-led art, explore the basics of exhibition curation, and connect young people with their peers through art.
Bilingual NCMA To Go Activity Kits
Jumpsuit Project artist Sherrill Roland partnered with the NCMA, North Carolina Central University School of Law, and the artists of MacFly Fresh Printing Co. to create a socially engaged art experience for the Teen Promise student group at Broughton High School.

Transactional to Transformative Impact
In partnership with curator and founder of the Black on Black Project, Michael S. Williams, this initiative responds directly to the needs of communities across North Carolina, with a focus on communities outside the Greater Triangle. Creating space for dialogue and programming that examines racial and social injustices through the lens of Black Americans and other people of color, the program impacts two communities annually. Its goals are to explore community histories, share those histories and other findings through the visual and performing arts, recognize North Carolinians and Black artists, and increase North Carolinians’ awareness about our challenging racial and social history, including the role cultural institutions have played in that history. Lost in Transition is our first project. This work is funded by the William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust.
