PARTicipate is an exhibition of Stacey L. Kirby’s experimental "performative interactions." PARTicipate offers a glimpse into Kirby’s ongoing face-to-face dialogue with more than 2,000 people about belonging, identity and the validity of our voices. Visitors to the Bureau of Personal Belonging engage with the officer on duty (performed by Kirby herself) in such works as The Declaration Project and VALIDnation. Participants are encouraged to find their own voice through writing their responses to prompts on paper “forms” that they then submit for departmental approval, contributing to a growing archive of personal histories. PARTicipate is part of CAM Raleigh's Emerging Artists Series and is supported by SiteLink Software, DECO Raleigh and the City of Raleigh based on recommendations of the Raleigh Arts Commission.

The So & So Series began in Boston in 2006 and moved to Raleigh in 2008. Featuring both local and national poets, So & So has hosted more than 300 readers, including Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners. In order to connect more fully with Raleigh's arts community, So & So has partnered with CAM Raleigh for the 2014 season. Poets will be responding to pieces of their choosing in whatever exhibit is being shown at the time of their reading. The hope is that this will start a dialogue between the poets and the artists and may even lead to interesting and exciting collaborations.

The CAM Raleigh Urban Drawing Group is a monthly group intended for all skill levels interested in exercising, exploring or expanding their drawing skills. The Urban Drawing Group meets inside of CAM Raleigh and then enters the urban settings surrounding the museum in the Warehouse District, and sometimes further into downtown Raleigh. Pausing at inspiring vistas, ignored buildings, curious landscapes, or forgotten details, the goal of the Urban Drawing group is to take time to study our surroundings and exercise our dormant drawing skills. All media that can pack into a pocket, backpack, or purse are encouraged and participants please bring your own supplies.
Participants please check-in at the CAM Raleigh front desk upon arrival.
*The group will depart CAM Raleigh shortly after 2:00 p.m., please arrive early so you have time to check in.
Participants must be 18+.
