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.
