Sit + Chat with Laura Ritchie

Join us for a conversation with local thinkers and doers as they engage with photographs from Southbound through discussions that impact our lives.

Laura Ritchie is co-founder and former director of The Carrack, a zero-commission community art space in Durham, NC. A native of Salisbury, North Carolina, Ritchie has studied at UNC-Chapel Hill (BFA), the Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy and the Institute for Curatorial Practice at Hampshire College. She is a National Arts Strategies 2015 Creative Community Fellow and a 2014 Indie Arts Award winner. Ritchie serves on Duke Performance’s Advisory Board, on the Board of Directors for Elsewhere and The Carrack, and on the Public Art Committee for the City of Durham. Through community-engaged projects, Ritchie strives to be a catalyst for collaborative, interdisciplinary work across the arts in North Carolina.

This Fall, Ritchie is taking a break from graduate work at Duke University to complete a curatorial residency at the McColl Center for Art and Innovation in Charlotte. She lives in Durham with her partner Shirlette and their cat, Fiddle.

The Sit + Chat series is held in collaboration with Be Connected, a community initiative connecting audiences, addressing disparities, fostering equity, and bridging understanding through the arts, culture, music, and politics.
