The Vault is an organization dedicated to providing an inclusive, affordable event space, in Durham’s growing intercultural landscape, where people from different walks of life enjoy, learn and experience art from The Afrocentric Diaspora in a positive and progressive environment.

The organization was formed in June 2015 by Moses Ochola, in response to him witnessing firsthand the changing demographics of the city and how downtown's rapid growth and shift is reflecting a homogenous scene.

The Vault’s overall mission is to build community by providing a space dedicated to promoting & showcasing Art & Culture, while facilitating and inspiring social change in Durham.
