Krik? Krak!: A call and response in some Haitian villages between a storyteller and their audience.
CCB is planning our next virtual popup exhibit, "Krik? Krak!" and we want you! All visual and performative artists are welcome to apply. Applications are due by March 27th, with all chosen artists to be notified by April 1st.
Stories have been used in various ways throughout history. There's folklore that is meant to frighten and entertain. Cautionary tales that are used to guide and teach through grizzly consequences. Other stories are used to draw out emotion and can inspire one to confront a conflict with the world or with oneself. Growth and healing can be sparked by these ancestral tales.
No matter our journeys, we all have at least one story that has left a great impact on our lives. A story that has shaped our view of the world around us and ourselves. That taught us how to tell right from wrong and keep our loved ones safe. Whether through song, paint, dance, and poetry, Creatives of Color Boston wants to share your stories!
This virtual event will include a panel on Friday, May 14th, followed by an exhibition showcase on Saturday, May 15th.
Artists will be responsible for the supplies needed for the work being submitted.
If you have any questions about the popup exhibit, please feel free to drop us a line at JSantos [at] CreativesOfColorBoston [dot] com.
