Black Arts Festival
February 8-10, 2018
Columbia College Chicago
The Black Arts Festival provides an affirming, community space for Chicago artists who identify within the African diaspora to share work (film, music, dance, design, fine art, spoken word, academic papers, etc.), and critically engage with each other through roundtable discussions, audience interaction and collaboration. The festival engages the larger Columbia community--creating a space for the entire Columbia campus to learn and listen to one another, to express the connectedness of all of our experiences, while also taking and creating space for black students, their artwork and their stories.
In the Spring of 2017, Alivia Blade and Bri Heath, Columbia students and co-founders of SAFE SPACE Chicago (a black artist community), noticed similar experiences and concerns from black students at Columbia. Their peers expressed feeling quite isolated at Columbia, and a lack of openness and affirmation toward their work in classroom settings. From these surveys, students expressed feelings of isolation, as well as a desire to have space to share their artwork, have their artwork affirmed by the larger Columbia community, collaborate with other black students, and engage with black faculty members. Alivia and Bri decided to approach Dr. Robert Hanserd with the idea of a black arts festival, where black artists could be in community with one another, engage in critical dialogue with other artists and intellectuals, and be affirmed in their work.
