ATLANTA, GA, Aug. 02, 2019
Fresh off the heels of our 30th anniversary year, we are excited to announce several initiatives that will lead to new growth and opportunities for advancement for the work of artists of African descent. Most importantly, NBAF has worked for several years to become known as more than a summer festival. Thanks to the support of our Board, volunteers, patrons and generous corporate partners, we have become a sustainable year round arts organization!
Over the past year, we’ve worked to cultivate programming that impacts the future through youth education, supports emerging artists and yet still provides festival-like arts programs for the public throughout the calendar year.
And we’ve already enjoyed tremendous success by eliminating the barriers that were imposed by a defined season.
Every step forward furthers our mission to expose, educate, engage and entertain audiences as we present and support fine art and artists of African descent, while broadening cultural experiences for all. Our mission and our fine arts disciplines are the same. We’re just no longer bound by time.
