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.

The program includes paid opportunities for local artists in the tri-county area to participate in events throughout the year. To learn more, click here.

In 2023, Broward Center’s Arts for Action: Black Voices initiatives are presented by Baptist Health and JM Family Enterprises Inc.
