The Carrack's mission is to empower our community through access to, and expression through, the arts. Just as we encourage artists to take ownership of their work and its presentation in our space, we ask our supporters to determine their ability to give.

We offer tickets at a number of price points to ensure a welcoming and successful fundraising event. Detailed information about the impact of your contribution at all levels is provided in the “more info” section next to each ticket type on the ticketing page. Please select the ticket that best reflects your ability to support The Carrack.

Tickets go on sale at noon on September 1. Please visit for more information and to purchase tickets.


The Carrack is an artist-centered, volunteer-run, zero-commission gallery and event space in downtown Durham, North Carolina. Our mission is to empower local artists to forge productive ties with their community through professional exhibit and performance opportunities. 

The Carrack is run entirely on grassroots donations. We raise all of our operational costs before the start of a new exhibit season so that we can offer free space and creative freedom to artists without added commercial pressure.
