Help Fund Hairpin Arts Afro-Diasporic Art Show

Hello Everyone!


We are putting together an Art show that will take place February, 2019. The show brings together 15+ Artists within the African Diaspora to make work about the future/futures of our cultures and communities. We have found a space that has generously allowed us to use the space for a couple of weeks. This community arts center is volunteer run which makes it more incredible that they are invested in our stories enough to give us the space for free when they could charge us. Although the space is free for us, we would like to help The Arts center pay for their space for the time we are using it.


The Hairpin Arts Center requires approximately $1,000 a week to operate ($2K in total for the duration of our show). We are asking for donations to help pay for operating costs of the space and to say thank you to the Staff for being wholeheartedly behind our ambitious visions.


About the Show:


In the show, “Don’t Be Scurred: Pathways to Liberation”, we reflect on intersectional political, communal, and spiritual issues facing people of the African-Diaspora. This show aggregates the unique and inspiring voices of young Black/African-Diasporic artists, reflecting their current experiences, allowing them to vocalize their visions of the future.“Don’t Be Scurred” is reflective of the past and present of African Diasporic history. “Pathways to Liberation” invokes Afro-futurist ideals to envision a better future for people of the African-Diaspora. We should fearlessly, reach towards possibility while celebrating our collective strength, creativity, and perseverance.


While we are fundraising here (online), we also have over 5 supplemental programs between opening and closing of the show. These programs are planned to be community & interaction-based and will also (through limited use of for-sale items) in order to help us raise money.


*The Show opens Feb 22nd 2019
