Artists need other artists! So excited I get to be a part of this talented group of black artists. What started as a few informal gatherings has become one of the most nourishing spaces for my personal/artistic/human growth. Proud to be a part of BLACK Lawrence. See our mission & vision below! <3
BLACK Lawrence stands for: Black Literature & Arts Collective of Kansas, Lawrence
BLACK Lawrence believes in the celebration of black creative expression as a vehicle for artist & community growth. We seek to elevate the dialogue around the meaning of being a black artist & creating black art. We are artists of various mediums, including visual art, music, poetry & more! Each of our members comes as they are to inspire & support each other. Through workshops & showcases, it is our mission to assist black artists in networking with one another & the community, as well as to transform spaces to become inclusive of black people.
