What: Black Memory and Imagination: A Conversation on Archiving Black Arts

Where: Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55408
This event is free. Registration is requested.
How do we preserve, celebrate, reclaim, and reimagine Black creativity within and beyond the archive? Black Memory and Imagination is an open conversation with local artists who practice in a spectrum of media to consider this and more. Artists will reflect on the legacies that feed them as cultural producers, and the legacies they hope to leave.
This event is free and open to the public. Conversation will be facilitated by Erin Sharkey and Junauda Petrus of Free Black Dirt, with a reception to follow.
Black Memory and Imagination is organized and sponsored by Free Black Dirt, Intermedia Arts, Umbra Search African American History and the Givens Collection of African American Literature at the University of Minnesota Libraries.
