The Prelude Series
About the series...
Produced by Boston Art & Music Soul (BAMS) Fest, ARTDACITY is a conversational style series that explores the intersections of the arts, civic engagement and the lived experiences between Black and Brown creative entrepreneurs and communities-at-large.
We hope that this series:
Gives visibility and voice to Black and Brown creative entrepreneurs and small business owners so that audiences can support them.
Provide a platform that edu-tains (educates and entertains) and empowers audiences to increase their level of civic engagement and resourcefulness with each other and in support of the Black creative economy.
The Soul in Food: The necessity of Black restaurants and chefs in culture and community.
In Boston, the need to support Black-own restaurants is underrated and has impacted the identity, narrative, and belief that our City is even capable of sustaining Black culture. What must change in order for Boston Black-owned restaurants and the soul in our food to be respected, amplified, and holistically supported across communities?
Hear from Black restaurateurs, owners, and operators discuss the challenges and solutions they believe can chart new paths of opportunity for the next generation.
