About the Project
The Culture Rooms is a multi-room experience under one roof that taps into the multiplicity and value of Black Culture today and our hopes for tomorrow. Through multi-sensory installations, performances, and workshops, we present you with a new way to connect Blackness, creativity, culture, and community.
Adapting to the Times
Your probably thinking ,'It's COVID, I'm not trying to go inside of any room but my OWN'. We got you. We aren't trying to be in any room other than our own right now either. That being said, we believe in the future and we know you have been missing art and soul. So we have developed outdoor iterations of this magical experience.
This is going to be expensive, but we will lose way more if it never happens. This work is imperative. The history, stories and creativity of Black Culture must be told in dynamic ways, by Black artists, with multiplicity, dignity and inclusion. We are going to make it happen. We ask that you dig deep and cough up some coinage so that we can make this happen. Consider making a contribution. The money will go towards paying artists, fabrications, permits and space.
