Dear Friends!

February is International Month of Black Women in The Arts, sponsored by The Black Women’s Arts Festival!

Celebrate by:
a) Learning about black women in the fine, performing, literary, culinary, and healing arts!
b) Becoming a m/patron to a black woman in the aforementioned arts!
c) Take a big step in forwarding your own identity (not necessarily career) as a black woman in the aforementioned arts!
d) Network with or subscribe to news by and about The Black Women’s Arts Festival, an annual showcase of multi-media creative and healing arts, and workshops by black women in Philadelphia, since 2003. BWAF Philly is, and always, has been, “open to all respectful persons.” It’s by us, for everyone! 
If you missed the most recent one (October 24-26, 2015), be sure not to miss the next!
In art, sisterhood, and community,
