from revered to forgotten,
from rap to rhapsody!


LunART’s Virtual Festival – OCT 10 and 17 

Human Family: Celebrating Black Women in the Arts 

We are BACK for a third season, and SO excited to continue our mission to support, inspire, promote and celebrate women in the arts! This one-of-a-kind presentation, “Human Family,” will be available via two video livestreams on LunART’s website and Facebook page. Both events will be free of charge, with donations graciously accepted.

In response to the most recent and ongoing racial injustices, and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, "Human Family" virtual festival will feature art created by Black women. We will feature a palette of emerging and established artists drawn from Madison’s rich arts scene, while also celebrating women from the past who paved the way for generations to come. In true LunART style, you will enjoy a tapestry of artistic disciplines including dance, classical chamber music, singer-songwriters, and spoken word.

Operationalizing Social Work Principles in Music! 

"This presentation will introduce my research exploring the deliberate integration of social work principles into music pedagogy and performance. I argue that the intentional synergy of these two disciplines can contribute to a more anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and socially just classical music landscape. I will discuss two frameworks from the discipline of social work and I will show applied examples of how they can be operationalized by musicians."
