Foster Street Festival for Arts Entrepreneurship
Durham 150 Grantee
Our event will display the wide variety of innovations that have enabled artists to create flourishing businesses in downtown Durham. We will share the history of these collaborations, provide opportunities to talk to the artists and artisans about their entrepreneurial journey, and offer an opportunity to view and/or purchase arts and craft pieces.
The event will reflect the Durham community in its diversity of collaborators and will particularly highlight how the creative community is an important driver of economic and cultural growth in Durham.
The thriving arts community in the Foster Street area has been growing and evolving over decades, and continues to produce new business owners each year.
