“State that there could not be a more appropriate time to organize, encourage, promote and solicit the stories of BIPOC Youth; would be one of the most serious understatements of our collective time. Universally, the media, mainstream, and entertainment industries have denied their responsibility to be the champions and gatekeepers of storytelling. Whether it’s the various stories of women, the stories of the 2nd and 3rd worlds, the stories of survival, and above all, the stories of those who couldn’t tell it themselves. No matter what space we occupy, what profession we
here, the age and the free will that we call ours, we must respect our commitment; to honor the stories around us.
This joint venture will see Azure Antoinette use her talent as a poet, actress and prolific visual storyteller to elevate the mission and create partnerships with brands that share CAC’s vision. Azure will create targeted promotions, leverage its personal brand and image for marketing campaigns on behalf of the CAC, and use its in-depth knowledge of storytelling, communications, and advocacy work to build positive momentum for the Community. Art Center and the efforts of its students.
