Too often Black and Brown creators are shut out of arts and culture conversations. We launched LAYERS to amplify their voices.

LAYERS by The Feels


This monthly online series deep dives into the influences and backgrounds that inform the artistic output of Black and Brown creatives in our city. Through candid, intimate discussions, we explore these artists’ insights into our arts ecosystem and the complex relationships among artists, their communities and the cultural policies that dictate how art is produced and consumed.

Every year, the showcase, which is our main fundraising effort, continues to grow in scope and size–and our ability to support more artists, business owners and youth grows right along with it.
