Art Leaders of Color Network - ALCN

ALCN's vision is to become a 'go-to' authority and platform where ALCN members (founders & friends) are recognized as tastemakers on the cutting edge of innovative cultural production---within the Chicago art world in general but within Chicago's marginalized art world(s), in particular. ALCN's mission is to deliver critical presentation insights and initiatives that enlighten and empower artists/ audiences/ critics/ producers/ venues/ donors & funders to seek and support boundary-pushing arts programming by creatives of color. Stay in touch with us at alcnchicago@gmail.com, like us on Facebook and of course sign up to receive the ALCN Digest.

"We need to evaluate our industry and ask why the arts—a disciplinary field known for attracting sensitive and empathetic souls—has devolved into a business where our basic human needs can be unmet and we’re supposed to remain silent about it."

"Salaries are not the only disproportionate inequality in theater. My career in theater has been an arduous journey. As a Black woman director with integrity, I find that it takes women like me longer. We are often overlooked and offered work beneath our skill level. The industry can be selective in supporting “unknown” artists because of the proximity to or away from certain higher institutions. For me, the idea is to constantly create. I take the opportunities that will serve my spirit and my creativity. But I never wait, I create my own work, find ways to connect to my community, and stay true to my mission of serving Black women, young ladies, and girls. Money can only do so much for you—it can’t teach you how to love, nurture, and mentor the ones coming behind you."

"With public appreciation have come demands to attend openings, lectures, interviews and panels at a time when travel can be onerous, or when artists prefer to be in the studio. Those whose work was never political or didactic are apprehensive about being framed as black artists, rather than as just artists."
