We want to be clear. Create Birmingham is an anti-racism organization. We strive, entrepreneur by entrepreneur, to build an inclusive and just economy in which Black business ownership is equitably resourced and purposefully nurtured. We intentionally spotlight and celebrate Black thought, contribution, and achievement in the arts and all creative work, and we will continue to seek out ways to amplify Black voices. We believe that all humans are born with a spirit of creativity…
Creative work, at its core, is not about an ultimate finished product. It’s about authentic engagement with audiences, customers or clients. It’s about an expression that cannot be contained. And it’s about human connection and shared experience.
What is Create Birmingham doing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic?
“We are a blessed city to have so many brilliant folks live and work here. I feel like we all inspire each other to create.”
“…there is a need for artists to question, make, and exhibit — and a need for people to see and experience.”
