The Carrack is an artist-centered, volunteer-run, zero-commission exhibition and event space in downtown Durham, North Carolina. The space hosts a new exhibition every two weeks, as well as frequent performances, workshops and creative gatherings. The Carrack is devoted to providing creative opportunities for artists who are:
- emerging and seeking inaugural exhibition space
- experimenting and seeking a departure from an established art practice
- producing work that is radical in content and/or imagery
- creating temporal, site-specific work
- seeking a central gathering space and community unbounded by discipline, age, class, race, gender or other identities
All artists and organizers use The Carrack for free and keep 100% of what they make from sales if they choose to sell their work. The Carrack is entirely funded by grassroots donations.

We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, audience, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.
