The Black Experience is one of SAIC’s largest, most popular and sought out events of the year. In the last couple of years, we were accompanied with BbyMutha, TYGAPAW, Kiara Lanier, Bonita AppleBlunt, and DJ Rae Chardonnay who, besides BbyMutha and TYGAPAW are prominent figures in Chicago nightlife. This event is about black queer liberation, claiming space, and celebrating all of our successes throughout the year, with an attendance of 300+ people. This year we are proposing an event around specific artists who explore sonic and visual experimentation that unifies their work in order to build a dialogue which considers a vast spectrum of intersectional narratives, Black instrumentation, and semiotics of the African diaspora. Diversifying sound as a contemporary discipline of open engagement by inviting the audience to access a multi-sensory experience that is rich in ethnic and cultural specificity. The funding will be used as honorariums and domestic flight costs for the artists we tend to solicit.
