A reminder that we’re here for you in the midst of uncertainty

As the coronavirus continues to spread in Charlotte, the U.S. and overseas, the health of our artists, families, team and the community is very important to us. 
SouthEnd ARTS board, team and volunteers have been closely monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus). After careful consideration, we are cancelling ARTS at the Trolley events scheduled for April 2-3, 2020. Our top priority is the health and safety of the artists, and general public. Our team will be in touch with artists, speakers, musicians and judges ASAP. 

As the situation is rapidly changing, we will provide updates on programming as necessary.
In addition, next week we will spend time working from home to test our remote working capabilities as well as alternate art exhibition opportunities. Technology may be able to make that transition, if it becomes necessary.

Bottom Line: As we navigate this time of uncertainty together, we hope that you and your families are safe and well. Be assured that we are here if you need us.

SouthEnd ARTS is a 501(c)(3) art and education nonprofit changing the face of ARTS culture in South End.

We believe when you invest in SouthEnd ARTS, you are investing in the vibrancy of Charlotte’s cultural community and a commitment to making the arts accessible to all.

As SouthEnd ARTS grows its reach, we invite you to be a part of the narrative of a transforming community, where we strive to ensure that meaningful opportunities exist for local artists and create culturally enriched spaces for community members.

SouthEnd ARTS ….  Making history by creating monthly equity art exhibition space in South End.  
SouthEnd ARTS, aka SEA, is expanding programming and outreach locations because of the immense needs of underinvested artists to show and sell their work.
SEA considers Charlotte‘s artists a vulnerable demographic, mostly forgotten when the community assesses the impact of Charlotte’s lack of upward mobility. The mission of SouthEnd ARTS is to fill that need by creating equity exhibition opportunities, buildIng cultural bridges and empowerIng artists and their communities.
SouthEnd ARTS believes in providing economic opportunity by paying our musicians, speakers, performance artists, BFA & MFA invited jurors and 4 prize-winning artists.

Each month, in the Charlotte Trolley Powerhouse building on Camden Road, SouthEnd ARTS holds a two-night juried art exhibition featuring underinvested artists.
