12-OC-SH_opt  Art Conspiracy returns to our side of the river Saturday, Nov. 16.

The annual art auction and concert started in 2005 as a way for Oak Cliff neighbors to help victims of Hurricane Katrina through a local art auction. Since then, “art conspirators” have raised thousands of dollars for charities, a different one each year, while throwing a really fun party.

This year’s beneficiary is My Possibilities, a day program for adults with special needs. And the event, which includes performances from New Fumes, Zhora and DJ Empty Cylinder, takes place at 500 Singleton.

The call for artists already is closed, but Art Conspiracy 9 is calling for volunteers from “cash handlers to videographers, door folk to producers, band-wranglers to runners.” Register to volunteer here.

Tickets already are on sale for $10-$125.
