A Midsummer Night's Drink
What says "summer" more than a rooftop party?

The Centene Center for the Arts is a dynamic, vibrant arts incubator owned and operated by the Arts and Education Council and strategically located in the Grand Center Arts District. Through a leadership gift from the Centene Charitable Foundation, the Arts and Education Council's arts incubator fosters a community of growth for St. Louis arts organizations by offering facilities and services they need - from below-market rate office spaces to free rehearsal and event spaces to collaborative spaces for idea-sharing.
