1989 and 2014 City of Raleigh Medal of Arts Winner - Arts Together

Arts Together is the only non-profit in the City of Raleigh with a year-round arts education program that encompasses visual art, dance, drama and music in a multi-arts format for ages three through adults. Arts Together was established in 1983, and for over 30 years has provided quality arts education to students from three years-old through adults. Arts Together cultivates creativity and provides a nurturing environment for the people of the Triangle to learn and grow. Arts Together has been honored to receive the City of Raleigh Medal of Arts Award in 1989 and again in 2014. Learn more about Arts Together through our City of Raleigh Medal of Arts Video: 



As a community school for the arts, we cultivate individual, creative strengths in a diverse, inclusive, collaborative and nurturing environment.

Arts Together, a 501(c)(3) organization, is funded in part by the City of Raleigh based on recommendations of the Raleigh Arts Commission. Arts Together is supported by United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County with funds from the United Arts campaign as well as the North Carolina Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art. We also receive funds from The Morgan Creek Foundation and many individual donors. 


Located just shy of downtown Raleigh on Saint Mary’s Street, we are conveniently located less than a block from Hillsborough Street and across from Saint Mary’s School.  

Arts Together resides in the Tucker Carriage House, a 19th century historic landmark owned by Raleigh Housing Authority. Arts Together renovated the building for Raleigh Housing Authority over 20 years ago, thereby saving an historic treasure for the capital city so that it could be enjoyed by generations to come. This rare structure, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, still stands today because a coalition of public and private agencies worked cooperatively to make it happen. Arts Together was not only an ideally-suited tenant, but also drove the project ahead by securing funding to renovate the space. Its adaptation into bright, airy studios and classrooms is a testament to preservation and appropriate reuse. Arts Together and the Tucker Carriage House marry aesthetics and function in a way that breathes new life into a space steeped in the history of our city.


Due to Arts Together's location in the historic Tucker Carriage House, parking can sometimes be challenging.  Streetside parking is the most convenient option for guests and students and is always free!  We kindly ask you not to park in the drop-off circle in front of the building or in the private lot behind the building.
