2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Pia Deas will create Contemporary Black Canvas (CBC), a bi-weekly podcast that celebrates the depth and breadth of Black artistic and intellectual thought. CBC will feature 26 interviews with Black artists and institution builders from the United States, the African Diaspora, and Africa. Through interviews with writers, musicians, performers, and visual, culinary, and horticultural artists, CBC will offer a sophisticated and multi-disciplinary picture of the Black artistic tapestry. By presenting artists who are committed to artistic excellence, innovation in their fields, and social change, CBC will showcase the inherent value and beauty of Black people. CBC seeks to inspire and transform communities by introducing listeners to artists and by creating an exchange of ideas.
