What We Do

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.

This year’s BOOM will take place in the neighborhood of Plaza-Midwood from Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28, 2019
