Show Yourself Off

Share Your Work

Putting on a showstopping performance somewhere in the Southport area? Is your work on display at a gallery or shop? Maybe you were awarded a grant or an accolade for your art? Or maybe you know someone who is being featured somewhere and want to drum up attendance? We want to know about it!

Share your news with us at or click here to add your event to the Up Your Arts Calendar so we can promote your big night.

Perform for Us

Up Your Arts regularly collaborates on events to promote local arts, from major events like the Southport Plein Air festival and the iconic 4th of July celebration.

We also organize a number of events throughout the year, such as a chamber music performance to concerts in unique places like the Cape Fear Regional Jetport tarmac!

If you would like to be considered for a future event, contact us at

Go Digital

Want to be featured on our social media pages? Want the chance to go viral and be the next hidden talent being interviewed on a talk show? We can’t make any promises, but we can support that wild dream!

If you want to submit a video to share with our internet masses, send an email to with your full name, a short bio and brief description of your performance, and a YouTube link to the video. 

Host an Event (Coming Soon!)

We’re getting a little ahead of ourselves here, but we just can’t contain our excitement! If you haven’t heard about our project to save Southport's old courthouse and former city hall, check out the whole crazy tale here

Our mission is to breathe new life into the historic building and turn it into the venue to top all venues, which is on track to be the host with the absolute most–picture it with us: a gallery to display the works of Southport artists, studios for you to create new works to display, spaces for musicians to practice or jam together. We’re also taking advantage of the unbelievable acoustics in the upstairs hall to create a performance and meeting space–great for concerts, weddings and business meetings alike; plus a gift shop that promotes local arts!

With all of that space, we’ll be ready to host everything from your office holiday party to your charity’s silent auctions to your wedding to your niece’s sweet sixteen, or any other event you can dream up! If you’re as excited for this reality as we are, visit our Support page to find out how you can help the cause.
