About Host Laura Ritchie: champion of art and community

Laura Ritchie is co-founder and director of The Carrack, a community art space in Durham, NC that supports emerging and underrepresented artists through zero-commission exhibition and performance opportunities.

Laura has studied at UNC-Chapel Hill, the Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy and at the Institute for Curatorial Practice at Hampshire College and is currently pursuing a Masters at Duke University. She is a National Arts Strategies 2015 Creative Community Fellow and a 2014 Indie Arts Award winner. She currently serves on the Exhibitions Committee at Waterworks Visual Art Center in Salisbury, NC and on the Art Committee for Durham County Library.

Laura believes that artists are an invaluable resource for creatively re-imagining our communities as inclusive, interdependent networks. She works to identify and create the conditions that empower artists to thrive, and to leverage that power to combat patterns of physical, economic, and cultural displacement.
