Interview with our Director About CCA
The Community Council for the Arts
The Community Council for the Arts (CCA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which was established in Kinston, Lenoir County more than 50 years ago. Its home, the Arts Center, is a beautifully renovated, 30,000 sq. ft. building located in the heart of downtown Kinston. This cultural center offers residents, children and visitors quality programming and continued development of the arts in and for our community and extended region. The Community Council for the Arts is dedicated to help Lenoir County residents experience the joy, promise, and the pursuit of artistic excellence.
The Arts Council’s home, the Arts Center, is nestled in the heart of downtown Kinston at 400 North Queen Street. We are housed in a historic building which has been renovated and is handicap accessible. To find us, follow Queen Street to the railroad crossing. The Arts Center’s parking lot sits adjacent to the tracks on the southern side. If you’re traveling from the north, just turn right into the lot immediately after crossing the tracks.
