Missed out to spot the Bigfoot in the northwest of Charlotte, not a problem, we have a rather more enriching, satisfying and confirm news for you. The 9th edition of Charlotte Art Weekly is featuring almost everything that a creative soul requires for a living. With fantastic movie screenings, visual art exhibitions and short workshops, super groovy musical nights, open mic opportunities for budding artists, story narration evenings, photography events and cultural meetups the week is ideal for every creativity enthusiast to enhance his/her cultural literacy. It is indeed necessary to engage in live events and increase the communal harmony this is the only way to make sure, that the age of technology is not just building communities on social media and neighborhood thousands of miles away. Let us go there and illustrate them our passion for staying connected with the roots.

The 9th edition of Charlotte Art Weekly is dedicated to the life and work of Don W King, a prolific American writer and a social activist. Born in 1942, King was formerly a journalist at Charlotte Observer daily and later co-founded the Queen City Quordinators an organisation primarily working for the rights of the LGBT community in America and then became the editor of QCQ’s newsletter called Q Notes. Rights Warrior King was awarded numerous accolades for his contributions to the community and played a major role in organising the first Gay Pride Parade in Charlotte. He left for the heavenly abode in 2014 due to cancer, but his work still reminds about his presence amongst his adorers.
