CulturalDC is proud to present Torrents: New Links to Black Futures, a DC-based, interactive multi-day event gathering Black artists, collectors, professors, and more in a weekend of panels, screenings, and site-specific performances to examine critical questions about the development of Black cross-diasporic futures. This is not a conference, but a convergence, a program that aims to deconstruct the “traditional” inaccessible academic settings. The mission is to support the development of new works that challenge us to reach outside our collective imagination, while daring to disrupt traditional models across mediums.
“We are so excited to host this incredible group of Black leaders in the arts,” says Kristi Maiselman, CulturalDC Executive Director and Curator. “Torrents: New Links to Black Futures has been curated excellently by our own Jamal Gray. His work on this project exhibits all the new and exciting ways the arts are advancing here in D.C. We are happy to use this platform to “Make Space for Art” in new and exciting ways. ”
Torrents: New Links to Black Futures runs from November 10th to13th. This multivenue event will be held primarily at The Source Theatre, 1831 14th St NW. Please see the run of show on our website for specific details on each event as some events are ticketed.
