This workshop aims to guide artists in utilizing their creativity as a catalyst for change, specifically at the intersection of art and social justice. I believe in the transformative power of art in activism and community engagement. The session will conclude with a 45-minute panel discussion featuring accomplished artists who have successfully integrated art into activism, particularly through the creation of public art with a social justice focus.
We seek to empower emerging black artists with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the art world successfully, including understanding gallery representation, identifying exhibition opportunities, and exploring artist residencies.
1.5 HOURS OF HANDS-ON LEARNING + COMPLEMENTARY ARTIST HEADSHOTS
Our goal is to equip black artists with resources, tools, and coping mechanisms for maintaining positive mental health within the art industry.
