ACES is POC-led, community-curated program with performances, exhibits, presentations, workshops, listening opportunities, and open forums. Our vision is to establish a space for us to celebrate and center ourselves. We are coming together with intentionality to value our work and to see each other as resources, while focusing on the challenges and and solutions we face as artists of color in the Pacific Northwest.
We acknowledge that the creative community in the Pacific Northwest is teeming with talent and resources— especially in communities of color where crisis breeds innovation.
Stay tuned for more ACES programming!
