BLACK ARTS MATTER FESTIVAL IN MADISON, WI
The Black Arts Matter Festival is an interdisciplinary presentation and celebration of Black artists. With a focus on performance art, BAM provides a platform for Black artistry that grapples with a myriad of topics including but not limited to Blackness and intersections. The Black Arts Matter Festival is both an entertainment and educational experience, providing shows that inspire, challenge and inform audiences on the so-called Black experience through art activism. We are thrilled to be hosting the next event March 23-26th!
