Black Art Rising

Black Art Rising is a digital exhibition created to help amplify the voices of young Black artists. LIFEWTR dedicated its social platform in the fourth quarter of last year to keep the call for change alive. Every week, they showcased the work of a contemporary Black artist, who then passed the torch to the next – ensuring the light never went out on these crucial, creative voices. We also encouraged creators to post their work using the #BlackArtRising.

As an artist it’s our responsibility to reflect the times. Art sparks conversation, and as an artist I believe we shouldn't shy away from creating the work that will make people have those difficult conversations.

My hope is that (Black Arts Rising) will empower and mobilize Black creatives with the resources they need to create and have their work expand not only their careers but the movement for Black lives.

When we elevate creators equally, allowing them to inspire the world and be inspired by others, creativity can flow freely.
