The Carrack is an artist-centered, volunteer-run, zero-commission art space in downtown Durham, North Carolina that hosts short, rapidly rotating exhibitions, performances, workshops, and community gatherings.
The Carrack proudly supports the work of creators who are underrepresented in the art world at large, including artists of color; queer and trans artists; and artists who are emerging, experimenting, or producing temporal and/or site-specific work.
We believe art is an invaluable asset – a resource for cultivating relationships, strengthening communities, and sparking political change. We seek a reimagined arts ecosystem: one that is accessible and collaborative, one that is unbounded by discipline, age, class, race, ability, 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. Find out how you can support this work here.
