the project

The contributions to the global artistic collective which has emerged from the concrete jungles of the inner cities of our great nation are both immeasurable and undeniable. As scientists, mathematicians and doctors are held in high accord so should the Miles Davis', Nina Simone's, Jacob Lawrence's, Kara Walker's be also. We believe that through the arts many who might be left out of many a conversation find a voice, a cause, a medium of expression, a platform from which they can be Queen / or King and their "voice" and talents may be heard. 

Our Roots.Arts.Cultures Expo aims to do just that. Provide a platform, a voice a pedestal for the inner souls of our inner cities to shine and be heard.

why we're doing it

Art influences by changing opinions, instilling values and translating experiences across cultural lines and divides. Art affects the fundamental sense of self. Expressions of one’s creative self through sculpture, music, literature and the other arts are often considered to be the repository of a society's collective memory and historical record.

The question should, in fact, be “Why wouldn’t we do it”?
