Black Creative Collective:Brownhall is comprised of Black artists and creatives that produce interdisciplinary art programming to address the dearth of Black art and creative spaces in Portland. We work with institutions, non-profits and both traditional and alternative art spaces to make visible Black artists’ work, while engaging the public at large in issues of race, equity, and shared space, providing a chance to celebrate, interact, experiment, and share resources. We seek to engage diverse audiences to honor the intersectionality of interests and histories within our own communities. We also seek to support each other as individual artists and creatives with unique experiences and practices.
BCC:Brownhall is supported by the Precipice Fund, The Calligram Foundation/Allie Furlotti, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts
