Where: Dairy Arts Center
On Feb. 23, BIPOC artists and Boulder County Arts Organizations are invited to join our kick-off event at the Dairy Arts Center, featuring Creative Nations. This event is free to attend. RSVP at Boulder County Arts. Founding members will share their current experiences and future plans for Boulder’s first collective and permanent onsite establishment of Indigenous Artists.
The event will start at 5:30 p.m. with an informal happy hour. At 6 p.m. the featured artists will present, followed by conversation and the opportunity to enjoy the NAACP’s Walk With Me, a selection of Civil Rights Era photographs from the Ernest C. Withers Collection. We will also share plans and get feedback for developing a Boulder County BIPOC artist directory.
Connect is a series for performance, networking, and dialogue among BIPOC artists and local arts organizations. The series is co-organized by the Antiracism Action in the Arts Initiative. The initiative was launched in 2020 as a study group composed of representatives from local arts organizations, including Boulder County Arts Alliance, Dairy Arts Center, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Jewish Community Center, KGNU, the Longmont Museum, the CU Boulder Office for Outreach and Engagement, CU Theatre and Dance, CU Art Museum and the B2 Center.
Collectively, the initiative seeks to promote diversity, equity, access, inclusion and fundamental change within historically white arts institutions in Boulder County.
