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.
Our hearts are so full! THANK YOU SO MUCH to the panelists and all who attended Saturday night's virtual panel! Special thanks goes out to Dorchester Art Project too for supporting us. Even further thanks to Dunamis for awarding us a grant under their Seeds of Joy program, and helping to make this all possible.

Creatives of Color BOSTON is proud to present a very special panel discussion, "Bundok | Mountain."
On May 2nd, CCB will be welcoming five individuals to the virtual stage to share their victories in inter-generational healing and what that means for them as POC. These folks are artists, directors, writers, and teachers of different backgrounds.
This event is proudly brought to you via the partnership and support of Dunamis and their Seeds of Joy program! WebEx details, in order to access the virtual panel, will be sent out closer to May 2nd.
Bundok, a Tagalog word meaning, "Mountain," here represents the inherited trauma passed down thru the generations. Mounting pressure as time goes on, from society, family, and oneself.
