The app, available to download for iPhone and Android devices, presents information about all UNC arts events and is designed to provide custom recommendations based on users’ interests. The app shows what is trending in the arts across campus and can be used to invite friends to events and explore new artists.

“Art is not only something you see,” said Emil Kang, special assistant to the chancellor for the arts. “Art is something you can do, you can experience and something you can share. It fosters a discussion and a connection with people around you. This app is designed to strengthen that connection for anyone on our campus.”

In conjunction with the new app, the tap company Dorrance Dance returns to campus for a weeklong residency, including a visit to a BeAM Makerspace to create wooden taps for dance shoes and a series of pop-up performances. On Wednesday, Michelle Dorrance, MacArthur Fellowship-winning dancer and choreographer and the company’s founder, will participate in a public conversation with her father, UNC women’s soccer Coach Anson Dorrance ’74.

Arts Everywhere was created in 2016 to invest in sustained creative practice, live arts experiences and arts learning on the premise that the arts are essential for learning and engaging communities. It’s a key initiative in the University’s $4.25 billion fundraising effort, the Campaign for Carolina.
