Soulful Safe Space Sundays is a program created by artists-of-color, for artists-of-color with the purpose of building trust through ​healthy, mindful exchanges​ within an ​art critique​ space. ​Meditation, literature, and discussion will be used as tools to facilitate this gathering.

About Because of This

BECAUSE OF THIS is a year-long exhibition + performance series that celebrates contemporary Black artistic life through the healing and transformative works of Midwest artists of the African Diaspora. Because of This is an ambitious undertaking in community building, spearheaded by curator Mary Lawson (Omaha, NE) whose selection of over thirty virtual and outdoor programs include visual art, performances, audio archive, critique series, panel discussions, and community bike rides.

Performances and public programming for this series will be divided into four parts. For Quarters 1 + 2, public programming will be accessed virtually, and outdoor installations including a sculpture walk, light work, sound art, murals and window vinyl, will be visible to the passerby at Charlotte Street Foundation’s new art campus and headquarters (3333 Wyoming St., KCMO). For Quarters 3 + 4,  public programming and performances will take place in real space and be limited to small, outdoor gatherings. Virtual platforms will be used as a contingency plan for these series components.
