About Durham Arts Council

Durham Arts Council, Inc. promotes excellence and access in the creation, experience and active support of the arts for all the people of Durham and the Triangle Region in North Carolina.

Founded in 1954, Allied Arts occupied several facilities before moving into the former City Hall on Morris Street in 1978, three years after changing its name to Durham Arts Council, Inc. In the mid 1980s, after a three year renovation, the city-owned building became DAC's long term home and, together with the adjacent Carolina Theatre, part of the Royall Center for the Arts in Downtown Durham.
