Arts for Action: Black Voices
Arts For Action: Black Voices is a Broward Center initiative focusing on how the arts and artists can be a force for change in addressing critical issues of social justice and racial inequality. The program features a variety of multi-disciplinary discussions, performances, and art-making events, virtually and in-person, culminating in a free outdoor arts festival in Esplanade Park on March 20, 2022.
The Arts for Action: Black Voices initiative is funded through the Community Foundation of Broward's Art of Community grant program, which aims to use the arts as a catalyst to heighten awareness, deepen knowledge, and mobilize action on social justice issues. Support has been provided by the following funds at the Community Foundation of Broward: Mary N. Porter Community Impact Fund, Community Concerts Association of Fort Lauderdale Performing Arts Fund, A Fund for the Performing Arts and the Linda and Michael Carter Fund.
Additional supporters of the Broward Center initiative include BBX Capital Foundation and JM Family Enterprises, Inc.
