What We Do
Please note: BOOM 2020 has been postponed until the autumn due to the COVID-19 crisis. We look forward to bringing Charlotte the biggest, loudest, and most diverse arts festival later this year.
Three days of art, performance and the unexpected.
Welcome to BOOM, Charlotte’s artist-led performance and visual arts showcase of contemporary and experimental works created on the fringes of popular culture. There are many ways for you to be involved as a volunteer at BOOM.
The three-day arts experience is a movement that believes in the explosive power of art to unite and strengthen our community. It believes art is transformational and can bridge traditional divides.
BOOM’s mission is simple: to spark creativity and collaboration among a diverse group of artists, performers, and audiences. To achieve that mission we convene artists, volunteers, nonprofits, businesses and neighborhood organizations to form a unique coalition working to transform the way arts and culture are created and shared in Charlotte.
We are intentionally reaching across the cultural divisions to bring together a team of creatives with a vision. BOOM is the realization of that ever-evolving vision that changes with the community and artists curatorial team.
