Many people are just getting introduced to CAM Raleigh for the first time, but a dedicated group of young professionals has been working under the banner of CAM/now for years to help make the new museum a reality. At CAM/now we aspire to be a hub of learning, education, and camaraderie in Raleigh for people interested in contemporary art and design. “All of our members seem to have a willingness to jump in and support different ideas to make the group and museum better,” Nicole Welch, one of the founding members of CAM/now and Curator of Education for CAM Raleigh, said.

Beyond networking and of course fun, CAM/now has been and will continue to be about engaging the community and making the case for why contemporary art and design should be an important part in people’s lives.
