The National Black Arts Festival - Atlanta, GA - July 18-27, 2008

The National Black Arts Festival is pleased to announce our upcoming twentieth year as the leading presenting arts and cultural organization in the United States celebrating the art and artists of Africa and the African Diaspora. We are many things to many people - an inspiration, a transforming force, a legacy, a depository of intellectual property, a creative clearinghouse, a center for creative exchange and collaboration, an artistic resource and a celebration of the creative spirit. Twenty years is a significant milestone and it is with pride that we declare, “We’re still here.”

The 2008 Festival dates are July 18-July 27. Mark your calendar!

The 2008 National Black Arts Festival!

The National Black Arts Festival is proud to partner with the Woodruff Arts Center to provide compelling forums for expression. The living legacy of the Civil Rights Movement has brought our groups together with a vision for collaboration. Through our programs we will explore the past struggle towards the dream, as well as the future of a civil, cultural, democratic and human rights legacy.

This unprecedented year-long collaboration centered on the language and living legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. The Atlanta Dialogue: Artists and the Civil Rights Continuum is comprised of performances and community discussions throughout 2008 that will explore the artists, civil rights and Atlanta’s role in the movement. The Atlanta Dialogue will include families that will become immersed into the process of this year-long collaboration.

The Woodruff Arts Center and its divisions—Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, High Museum of Art, and Young Audiences—and the National Black Arts Festival, will hold events and dialogues throughout 2008.

A full schedule of the dialogues and events can be found online at New programming will also be added throughout the year.
