Why support The Carrack?

We believe art is an invaluable community asset – a resource for cultivating productive relationships and sparking positive change.

The Carrack is a platform for experimentation, conversation, and connection through the arts. We provide professional support and free exhibition and performance opportunities that empower artists to dream big and speak out at all stages of their careers.

The Carrack is a zero-commission art space entirely funded by donations. Thank you for supporting this project and keeping art accessible.
