Thank you for reviewing opportunities to support the sustainability of black arts
& culture in Kalamazoo in partnership with the Black Arts & Cultural Center. For the last 37 years, the Black Arts Festival has provided stellar music, performances, visual art, film, dance, food, and handmade items created and presented by people of color! We are dedicated to giving artist of all ages a platform to display their craft to local, state, and national audiences, offering a one of a kind cultural enriching experience.
