ARTISTS OF COLOR
NBAF was proud to work with and support Artists of Color ATL (AOC): “Artist Check-In,” an online interview style show, where Darrell Grant of Black Theatre Group, LLC shines a spotlight on the magnificent work of Artists of Color in Atlanta.
AOC regularly broadcasts artist interview segments, new work, upcoming projects and artists can turn to members of the Facebook group for feedback & support.

Artist Project Fund
With the uneasiness we all feel surrounding COVID19, it is NBAF’s priority to ensure that our community doesn’t go without resources during times of a national crisis. As a result, NBAF (National Black Arts) launched an Artist Project Fund starting at $5,000 to support Black Artists in getting back to work and thus provide for their households. It is our hope to sustain this fund month over month through your support by adding new donors, corporate sponsors and community partners so that we can support black artists in Atlanta and eventually nationwide. We will award small stipends to artists to navigate through these difficult times and continue to support our artist community in creating the work that makes our world so vibrant!
