Black, Brown & Queer Festival
Aug
24
3:00 PM15:00

Black, Brown & Queer Festival

The Somerville Arts Council is partnering with Oompa to present the Black, Brown & Queer Festival. This event is a QTPOC (Queer and Trans, person of color) multi-disciplinary arts festival. It will be a free, outdoor, community festival, with all of the artists coming from the QTPOC community.

This festival is a celebration of Boston QTPOC artists and their contribution to the arts community/scene. Often, QTPOC artists are asked to bring one part of themselves to the table and to leave or hide others. What is a safer space for one identity does not cross the intersections into other identities, and often QTPOC artists leave feeling exploited and unseen as a result. This festival is loud about wanting to name, create, and cultivate a space that sees QTPOC artists as whole people with intersectional stories and selves to share.

All QTPOC individuals and allies are welcome to attend the festival.

Hosted by: Oompa

Performers include:
DJ Lady Ly (Habi Ly)
Porsha Rashidaat J. Olayiwola
Myles Sherrard Golden
Red Shaydez
Brandie Blaze
Kaovanny
Paper Citizen
Optic Bloom
Mint Green
Neon Calypso
NEON BLK
JP Delgado Galdamez

Also featuring visual artists, interactive arts and local vendors!
