Imurj bills itself as an “arts destination” with the mission points:

  • to promote amateur and professional artists and musicians to the next level of their career
  • to provide patrons of the arts a personal experience with the art and the artists that they love.

“The Imurj collaborative arts community is composed of basic, premium, and band members that utilize member resources in the downtown Raleigh location and on the Imurj digital platform. Designed with the artist and fan in mind, the Imurj space promotes the growth and development of artists. Through a wide range of workshops, performances, lectures, and classes Imurj is curating a new type of venue.”

From the Imurj website, “the 6,000 square foot space allows members to perform, engage, and create in the cafe, main event space, gallery, art studio, and production studio. Working in partnership with the well-established local art and music businesses in the area, Imurj facilitates access to services that artists need to elevate their careers.”
