POC POC is The Constant Now's mentoring program that connects young artists of color with art professionals. Through projects, talks, exhibitions, and visits, participants are provided with tools and insights to navigate the art scene.
In the lead-up to a manifesto empowering People of Color (POC) in the arts, the collective invited experienced POC artists and curators to share their stories and experiences.
The event on March 7 is an animated live talk about what transpired behind closed doors in preparing the manifesto. The audience is invited to join the process and the conversation, discover the work of POC POC artists, and enjoy a celebratory party.
POC POC at FOMU ANTWERP is open to POC artists, art workers, and anyone striving for a more inclusive art scene.
Admission is free after registration at the door. The talk will be conducted in English.
