Boundless talent. Unapologetic creativity.

Durham's arts scene is where the largest performing arts stage between DC and Atlanta meets community-focused YOLO Karaoke at tiny venues and collage night at DIY art spaces. Otherwise boring electrical boxes, parking garages, and tobacco warehouses are painted by local artists telling generations of history. Galleries uplift local artists on historic streets as musicians play together in bars, sidewalks and stages. Here, you'll witness talent that's uniquely ours as well as world-class acts inspired to perform in Durham. Experience the captivating creativity of a city that creates its own magic.
