Radical Creative Practices for People of Color

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, Room I-202, New York, NY 10011

As the first in a series, this event will explore how we, as artists and designers of color, embed a social justice framework into our diverse creative practices. An intimate panel will share how they’re navigating systems, institutions, and professional relationships in ways that uphold their values while also finding ways to pay the bills and grow their careers. Through a community discussion, we’ll explore the tensions and innovations in our own practices as people of color. We'll conclude with a wine and dessert happy hour.

Featuring Sable Elyse Smith, Raquel de Anda, Salome Asega and Crystal Clarity.

This series of events is hosted by ArtFuture NYC, a collective led by The Parsons Scholars Program and The Joan Mitchell Foundation. Our mission is to expand access to art & design careers for young people of color in NYC through tools, resources and information. The Radical Creative Practices for People of Color series is an initiative to nurture an intersectional community of artists and designers of color as a foundation for this work. As an intentional space for people of color to gather and share within community, we ask allies to note that the participation of people of color will be prioritized in this event series.
