We're teaming up with The Black Aesthetic to facilitate a skill-share discussion section at Amplify: Storytelling Conference for People of Color on Sunday, September 9th from 1:00pm-1:30pm in the UC Berkeley School of Journalism Library.
Tickets: SOLD OUT!
The Black Aesthetic is a curatorial collective whose mission is to curate a collective understanding of Black visual culture. By working with artists, writers, filmmakers, and designers. We cultivate work that asks our audience to consider their relationship to Black art. Based in Oakland, we are invested in developing a community who will participate and engage with our mission. When you support The Black Aesthetic, you are actively supporting a network of Black Artists.Through film screenings, and publications we want to add to a growing collection of artistic visions that are grounded in place, body, and lived-experience
Amplify is a storytelling conference for people of color. We write, produce, craft, investigate, report as a means to tell our and our communities stories, because the stories we hear about us are not told by us. As storytellers, we contribute to and preserve culture, we entertain with anecdotes, and most importantly, we shape the popular narratives, fictional or factual, that inform public opinion and in turn, public policy. Amplify is a chance to connect with other storytellers, learn from their mastery, and explore issues that influence your work including race, class, community, and ethics.
