The Holle Center for Communication Arts is an international, interdisciplinary hub for storytelling and social justice whose mission is to "support creative activity and scholarship that advances human dignity, breaks down barriers to understanding, illuminates injustices, and encourages collaboration and empathy." The Center serves as an incubator and creative collaboratory for 21st century nonfiction storytelling. The work of the Holle Center is guided by a commitment to advance "narrative justice" through innovative and arts-informed research, community engagement, and creative co-operation. 

​The Holle Center, a component of the College of Communication and Information Sciences at The University of Alabama, will open its doors in the fall and be located in Bryant Denny Stadium.

​The Holle Center oversees the national Holle Awards for Excellence in Creativity and Communication, which highlight and celebrate creative expression in seven categories including book arts, filmmaking, forensics, media writing, public speaking, screenwriting and sports media. The awards, which were established by Everett Hughes Holle and funded by the Holle Family Foundation, include a $10,000 prize for the winner of each category. The next funding cycle for the award will be 2025.

"Where Crunk Meets Conscious and Feminism Meets Cool"

​The Crunk Feminist Collective "aims to articulate a crunk feminist consciousness for women and men of color, who came of age in the hip hop generation, by creating a community of scholar-activists from varied professions, who share our intellectual work in online blog communities, at conferences, through activist organizations, and in print publications and who share our commitment to nurturing and sustaining one another through progressive feminist visions."
