CELEBRATION OF BLACK LIFE CYPHER
February 26, 7-9pm EST
Online, Zoom link will be sent after RSVP
Flux Factory presents the second edition of the Black Life Cypher. A night of Black joy and artistry hosted by Trasonia Abbott and Natasha Lynne.
This cypher is open to Black artists of all creative backgrounds, once signed up the artist will be given up to 5 minutes to show off the art of their choosing. All are welcome to attend, however the mic will be open only to Black creatives.
Natasha’s talk will focus on the struggles for resources that most POC artists often face while in school (or home). We dive a little into her childhood to discuss how she gained the discipline to be skilled in various art forms. Through that, we discuss how the subject matter of her projects has shifted and how the change affects her work today.
