Bring the Art of Cool Festival Back in 2016!

artOfCoolBW-0177 copy

Did you know that AOC is totally run by volunteers? We are growing by leaps and bounds and need your help to hire our first Executive Director (ED) for the festival!
We want to improve & provide the coolest festival in downtown Durham for you. The only way this can happen is by hiring an ED.

Will you pledge at least $10 per month to this effort? Your reward for this contribution over the next year is a two-day wristband to attend AOCFEST 2016 (May 6-7, 2016)! Cool right?
We are looking to hire a qualified individual this summer but need your help making sure the resources are in place to support this person.

“…an eclectic mix of Jazz, Neo-Soul, jazzy Hip-Hop and Retro Funk for two days. Purely that. Straight, no chaser, as North Carolina’s Theolonious Monk might say…The Art of Cool Music Festival, in Durham, NC, [is] the best-kept-secret, jewel box of a music festival happening this year…” – Wyatt Closs, Huffington Post Blog
