Philly’s 14th Annual Black Women’s Arts Festival (BWAF) calls for performers/presenters and helpers

deadline: Monday, September 14, 2020

Philly’s 14th Annual Black Women’s Arts Festival (BWAF) seeks artists in all media, including singers, dancers and other performers & poets, storytellers and inspiring others to participate in this year’s event, Saturday-Sunday, September 19-20, 2020 – live streaming (by Zoom) from your home or studio. Short film submissions and workshop presenters/speakers/panelists also wanted. Artists will receive a stipend still to be decided based on fundraising. 

Volunteers (and interns) of all colors and genders are also sought to assist in planning and organizing for this event. 
Because BWAF is 100% online this year, they are happily able to accept submissions from black female artists from all over the world, provided you, or the person receiving payment, have a social security number or an employee identification number (EIN).

If you would like to join in creating some much-needed beauty and inspiration during these challenging times, BWAF would love to create and work with you! As always, all respectful persons are welcome to attend or view performances, and volunteer! (All black female featured artists and presenters.)

Artists, presenters, volunteers/interns, and media, please contact Cassendre Xavier, Founder & Director by: Email: BWAFphilly@gmail.com
