VIBE Collective presents “Blackout: The Artist Showcase.” Blackout was born out of a desire to center and amplify the voices of Black artists in the Greater Akron area. "Centering Black voices through artistic expression,” says Jamie Keaton of VIBE Collective, “That's what Blackout is about.”
See the art that reflects our reality, our struggle, and our liberation. Blackout will feature local artists from a variety of genres including poetry, theater, spoken word, hip-hop, R&B, and dance. This immersive experience is open to all and will reflect the community of depth of talent of black artists in northeast Ohio.
Featured artists include: Josy Jones, Samson the Poet, Sharetta Latrice, Denzel The Artist,
A-Minus, Jasmine Golphin, Ace Boogie, Latoya Favor, Briah West, Jason Blakely, Tyron
Hoisten, and many others. The event will also feature local black visual artists and
entrepreneurs through vending opportunities.
Please note that this is a cabaret performance where the audience is on stage with the performers. Seating is limited.
