Celebrating Black Voices: Collaborative Collage and Book Fair
June 26 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
On June 26, 2021 there will be a celebration of Black voices including Black authors, Black artists and more. This event is being organized by The Artful Life in collaboration with North Shore Juneteenth Association.
Celebrating Black Voices: Collaborative Collage and Book Fair will take place at the Artful Life Counseling Center and Studio, 142P Canal Street, Salem, MA 01970. This event will be a drop-in event so you can come and go. Masks are required inside and we will be having much of the tables outside, weather permitting.
This event will consist of a book fair with children’s books curated by Copper Dog Books on the first floor with plenty of fresh air from Artful Life’s open glass garage door. The books will be by Black authors or Social Justice issues. 20% of proceeds will go to benefit North Shore Juneteenth Association. There will also be tables hosted by young Black artists and additional organizations such as Youth Build and the North Shore Chapter of the NAACP.
Upstairs in the spacious movement room, there will be the Collaborative Collage project. In honor of Romare Bearden, an accomplished Black American artist that used collage as a technique to create his art. Guests will be able to participate as a community in making a collage that speaks to the theme of the event, celebrating Black voices, and learn more about Romare Bearden. This is family friendly event but all all ages welcome!
Artful Life Counseling Center and Studio is so excited to collaborate with North Shore Juneteenth and Copper Dog Books for this celebration of the community coming together to celebrate Black Voices!
