I'm looking forward to painting and speaking at this event on Friday along with some great folks that have energized and inspired me!
NIna Simone once said “an artists job is to hold up a mirror to society”.
BlakCollectiv and spoken word poet, Brandon Wint, present: Artivism.
Artivism is an event dedicated to fostering a discussion of the critical consciousness that comes with the intersection of Black artistry and activism.
The first part of the event will feature performances from a variety of artists.
The second part of the event will be a moderated discussion which will examine the political challenges faced by Black people as well as Black artists, and how art is used to speak about and fight against oppression.
