More Information:

***Two notes, please do not bring live animals to sell (including fish, snails, etc.) and last year there were not many choices for “male” oriented buyers, so trying to increase items to sell for husbands, grandfathers, brothers, ect.***

Also, we can always use volunteers if you know of anyone who would be interested in helping guide the children through their shopping experience. 

Please pass this on to anyone you think would be interested in participating, either parents of children or other artists!

Thank you!

ArtsMarket is a biennial (every other year) conference featuring dozens of showcases at the historic Carolina Theatre of Durham, and over 130 exhibit booths at the Durham Convention Center!

SIGN UP to receive email news and updates about ArtsMarket applications, registration, deadlines, and more!  (non-members only) 

ArtsMarket provides three days full of opportunities to see world-class performances in the historic Carolina Theatre, to network with colleagues from North Carolina and the surrounding region, and to sit back and enjoy some Southern hospitality. Conference activities take place in downtown Durham, where theatre, exhibit hall, and hotel are all in one connected footprint. Durham welcomes hundreds of presenter, artist, agent, vendor, and service provider delegates over the course of the conference.  ArtsMarket features up to three dozen juried showcase performances, and 130 exhibit booths at the Durham Convention Center.

Presenter delegates come from all parts of North Carolina and the Southeastern region and represent a wide variety of arts organizations and venues, including small concert associations, colleges and universities, mid- and large-size performing arts centers, and everything in between.  Many of them look to ArtsMarket to book a significant part of their future seasons. In addition to the showcase performances, networking opportunities are abundant in the exhibit hall and at other scheduled conference activities.

ArtsMarket is co-produced by the North Carolina Presenters Consortium (NCPC) and the North Carolina Arts Council. Our shared belief is that presenting is an act of collaboration – between artists, manager, presenters, sponsors, and audiences – and we have designed ArtsMarket to foster a spirit of collaboration and collegiality.


“The best value, most impressive and best-run conference I’ve attended in years and years.”

“The warmth of the organizers, the high caliber of showcasing artists, and the professionalism throughout the event made this conference enjoyable and valuable.”

“We all came back bursting with ideas for next season.”

Durham is the place “where great things happen!”  Visit the Convention and Visitors Bureau site to help plan your trip.

ArtsMarket is supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
