Word Vomit Poets

Word Vomit Poets supports the growth of anyone within the community who aims to use their artistic expression to connect with society at large.

The goal of Word Vomit Poets is to embrace that expression can take a myriad of forms; and these forms can build a culture that is of healing and support. Our goal with Word Vomit Poets is to continuously build communities through both conscious and intentional efforts.


Center for Afrofuturist Studies

Vision: To live in a world where Black artists thrive

The Center for Afrofuturist Studies is an artist residency program that reimagines the futures of marginalized people by creating dynamic workspaces for artists of color. Dynamic means interactive, supportive, community-engaged, rigorous, and inclusive. The CAS wants to rethink and challenge what an art practice that revolves around Black futurity looks like. We believe that's only possible when arts organizations are committed to fully supporting the work being done by Black artists. To that end, CAS artists receive honoraria, funding for travel, housing, studio space, and logistical and programmatic support. Residencies include opportunities to engage with both adult and youth audiences, as well as opportunities for studio visits and informal meetings with cultural workers. The CAS also collaboratively produces exhibitions, workshops, and other programming as well as maintaining a growing public reading room and archive.
