2018 Producing Gathering Excursions

Each afternoon, you will have the choice of two excursions to some of Charlotte’s must-see cultural attractions! (You can also choose to stay at Children’s Theatre of Charlotte and create your own breakout conversation!) Sign up for your excursions when you register.

Levine Museum of the New South

The centerpiece of the Levine Museum is the award-winning exhibit, Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers: Reinventing Charlotte and the Carolina Piedmont in the New South. Spanning 8,000 square feet and including more than 1,000 artifacts, images, video clips, music, and oral histories, the exhibit uses Charlotte and its 13 surrounding counties as a case study to illustrate the profound changes in the South since the Civil War.

Visitors enjoy an interactive, hands-on experience as they tour 6 different “environments” within the exhibit.
