Arts Everywhere

Arts Everywhere is making the arts a fundamental part of Carolina’s culture and daily campus life.

The arts can unlock our fullest potential and generate new knowledge, develop citizen leaders, embrace differences and catalyze economic development. Celebrating the arts supports students’ pursuit of meaningful lives by helping them imagine new possibilities and foster a creative mindset to solve the world’s most complex problems.

Arts Everywhere Day

April 8 marks a return to an on-campus celebration of Arts Everywhere Day, with performances, installations and activities across campus. This year’s theme is “Grounded Growth,” which represents how artists and the Carolina community has grown during the pandemic and the role of the arts through these times.
