Slam Nuba featuring Peace

This month we're featuring the incredible poet Peace! 
Peace is a queer, black woman residing in Houston, Texas. Her writing style can be described as cut-throat wisdom; creating an experience that engages the audience and allows them to feel/heal freely based on interpretation. Her work can be seen on Write About Now Poetry as well as published in Thorntree Press’ A Whore’s Manifesto and her latest body of work, “Inside a Whore’s Mind.” Contrary to the common definition encapsulated in her name, Peace represents the confidence and grace in being yourself in your skin and not apologizing for it.

The information session at Black Cube HQ, 2925 S Umatilla Street, Englewood CO 80110

The INSITE Fund is a funding program in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regional Regranting program and RedLine. This new fund responds to the gap in Denver’s creative ecosystem for artist-driven projects that sit outside the “norm” of arts experiences and lead to expanded audiences. This two-year, $100,000.00 per year, grant program would add to and reinforce the importance of funding opportunities that are accessible directly to artists working in an expansive field of ideas, audiences and visual arts practices.

In Conversation with Margaret Neumann

  • Google Calendar ICS

Please join us in celebrating the art of Margaret Neumann, who was a singular figure in the emergence of RedLine as an “incubator” for young artists. Her role as one of RedLine’s first “mentor” (Resource) artists speaks to her centrality in this institution’s visibility and mission. This retrospective exhibition - “What Lies Between” -  celebrates RedLine’s 10th anniversary as well as Margaret Neumann’s return to the place that deeply nourished her and those artists fortunate enough to have encountered her.
