The mission of SouthEnd ARTS is to build a community committed to social justice through the ARTS. When you contribute to SouthEnd ARTS , your donation supports our mission by helping us to showcase local underrepresented artists; provide resources to help artists professionalize their portfolios; and sponsor regular Social Justice Speaker Series/performers
As with many organizations, COVID-19 has caused SouthEnd ARTS to shift from our monthly in-person programming and art exhibitions to a more virtual focus. We are excited to bring the magic online culminating with the October 2 premiere of our first virtual art exhibition JUSTICE presented in part by the Arts & Science Council, Balto Creative Media and BlueTide Creative
JUSTICE will be the first of many online exhibitions that will connect all of us across the distance through ARTS. Just as every in-person event of ours showcased a wide variety of local creatives, you can expect the same from this exhibition. On October 2nd at 7 p.m, you will see the premiere, filmed as a documentary on Facebook, YouTube, southendarts.net, and IGTV.
If you can't tune in on October 2, no problem as the JUSTICE video will remain up for all to view.
Although we have made the shift to online, we can't do this on our own. We need your help. Please consider donating to SouthEnd ARTS to further support artists in the Charlotte area. A $10 donation per viewer is suggested, by those who can. Your donation will allow for SouthEnd ARTS to continue our virtual Art Gallery exhibitions and make them accessible to everyone. Your support also helps SEA continue our mission and programs including art outreach for artists and art gallery scholarships.
We are thrilled to announce that a generous anonymous donor is matching donations dollar for dollar up to $7,000 for the virtual ARTS Premiere on October 2nd. We've set a goal to raise $10,000 to maximize this timely gift. Please donate any amount you can before October 2nd, and your gift will be doubled.
Your donation will allow for SouthEnd ARTS to continue our virtual Art Gallery exhibitions and make them accessable to everyone.
