The panel was presented Indigo Arts Alliance and The Atlantic Black Box Project.
Indigo Arts Alliance‘s mission is to build global connections by bringing together Black and Brown artists from diverse backgrounds to engage in their creative process with an opportunity to serve as both mentors and mentees.
