BlackLight Summit is celebratory support and vigilant caretaking by and for Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and LGBTQIA+ artists. 

In its third year, BlackLight Summit takes a deeper dive – with keynote addresses, panel discussions, workshops, and performances that ask tougher questions, hold space for rage, and challenge us all to meet this moment with new tools.

I’m beyond lucky to work with him and Ronya-Lee Anderson on the Education and Mentorship components of this program.
