BROADWAY ADVOCACY COALITION : 2020 ARTIVISM FELLOWSHIP
I am grateful to be a member of the inaugural BAC Artivism Fellowship, which has provided financial support, mentorship, networking opportunities, and education workshops for artist activists who use their tools to impact the world around us. This inaugural fellowship specifically supports Black, female-identifying artist activists who use narrative or stories in their work focused on issues related to systemic racism and criminal justice reform.
“Black women have always been on the front lines leading the charge for social justice, human rights, and equality,” said BAC co-founder Adrienne Warren in a statement. “However, Black women are often left out of the narratives connected to those causes and rarely celebrated in moments of triumph. This fellowship is an opportunity to uplift, empower, and support female-identifying artists of color, while centering those directly affected by systemic racism and inequality through BAC’s methodology. We are all served when a Black woman’s voice is amplified.”
BAC, the arts-based advocacy nonprofit founded by members of the Broadway community as a response to police brutality and racism throughout the country, is offering this fellowship to 10 female-identifying artists based in the United States, supporting them over the course of six months and culminating in a digital presentation of their work.
