Artist Services

Durham Arts Council's Office of Artist Services provides services for artists and arts organizations through DACís grant programs, exhibits, Durham Art Walk, and training and information. We can help you find the DAC program that will fit your needs or suggest other resources.

DAC offers three grant programs: Emerging Artists, Season, and Facility. Each program has a different mission, set of criteria, eligibility and timeline. Scan the guidelines to find the program that is right for you.

Exhibit Procedures/Call For Artists
Artist Services schedules 10-12 solo and special exhibits every year in the Semans and Allenton Galleries and holds an annual "Call for Artists" to select exhibits. For more information about the DAC Call for Artists (click here)..
