Culture Blocks Programs

Culture Blocks embraces and celebrates the cultural life and desires of residents, connects communities to arts and culture activities that speak to their interests, and seeks to break down barriers to participation with cultural organizations. As an ASC Program funded by Mecklenburg County, Culture Blocks is a community partnership with Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation to provide cultural programming closer to where residents live at libraries, parks, recreation centers, and relevant community spaces to increase access and reduce transportation and parking barriers.

Our Culture Blocks Programs: All programs are FREE and open to the public
