Community Programs

Culture Blocks logo with sponsors.jpg

Culture Blocks embraces and celebrates the cultural life and desires of residents, connects communities to arts and culture activities that speak to their interests and seeks to break down barriers to participation with cultural organizations. As an ASC Program funded by Mecklenburg County, Culture Blocks is a community partnership with Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation to provide cultural programming closer to where residents live.

As a community partner, Clayworks offer hands on clay workshops at several locations. All workshops are FREE and open to the public. Pre-registration is required for these classes. Projects created during a workshop will be brought back to Clayworks to be fired and glazed before being returned to the workshop location for pickup. Please allow 3 weeks for delivery.
