Starting off BOOM with a BANG:

On April 8th,9th and 10th, Que-OS will premier BOOM, Charlotte’s first artist-led annual showcase of experimental/contemporary performance and visual art. This first installment of BOOM will bring together local and national acts through a collaborative weekend of performance in the Plaza-Midwood neighborhood utilizing local business spaces and performance venues. BOOM aspires to expand the reach of art and culture outside of Uptown and establish it at the “fringes” of the city. This carefully curated compilation of visual and performing arts will integrate the local community and expose Charlotte to the wealth of innovative original work created in our region and across the country.
