Center for Creative Entrepreneurship launched in downtown Asheville
UNC Asheville and the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design move forward with The Hive, a creative campus planned for downtown Asheville.
From the UNC Asheville press release:
"UNC Asheville and The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) have partnered to launch the Center for Creative Entrepreneurship. The new center will create an all-in-one ecosystem to coalesce business resources and training programs to support student and community innovations and craft products. This initiative is supported by the Windgate Charitable Foundation, with an initial grant of $716,500.
"The three-year investment includes funding for pilot programming, operational support, and facility improvements toward the renovation of The Hive AVL, a shared regional resource center for academic institutions and the location of the Center for Creative Entrepreneurship. The project constitutes the second phase of CCCD’s redevelopment project at 67 Broadway in Asheville known as The Hive AVL."
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
