Connecting Entrepreneurs and Artists

We are a co-working community of diverse entrepreneurs, innovators, and artists who are passionate about building a more progressive and equitable workplace. Located in the historic grounds of NC Mutual Life Insurance and inspired by Durham’s legacy of Black business success, our tenets of diversity and inclusion are embedded in our DNA from the soil all the way up.

We are a contemporary, multi-industry co-working space designed by entrepreneurs and artists, for entrepreneurs and artists. The Understudy, an anchor tenant of Provident1898, offers shared studio space for artists of all disciplines to train, rehearse, and perform experimental work.
