DAM This Year 

When: Thu., Dec. 22, 7 p.m. 2016
Price: Donations accepted

The recent Indies Arts Award winners of Durham Artists Movement (see last week's issue) are leaving the Parrish Street loft gallery that, for the last six months, has helped them transform from a loose collective into a growing organization. But they always knew that would likely happen with the expiration of the lease they took over from the Carrack Modern Art when it moved. Saba Taj, Catherine Edgerton, and the dozens of other artists who make up the radically intersectional group are moving out full of new energy and big plans, which include securing a sustainable space for DAM's art making, social support, and community activism sometime next year. But first, it's time for one last party at 111 West Parrish, which doubles as a fundraiser for the group's next phase. At seven on Thursday night, DAM members give music, poetry, and other kinds of performances in a blowout billed as "DAM This Year." And, we have no doubt, DAM next year, too. —Brian Howe
