Stonewall International Poetry Slam (SIPS)
SIPS is an international poetry festival for non-cishet artists that centers Black people. We are preparing to kick off the inaugural festival in Baltimore, Maryland. The festival will take place from October 19th-24th, 2021 and will feature over 20 events as a part of the larger Baltimore Black Pride celebration.
The Black Arts District is excited to be co-organizers of Baltimore Black Pride 2021. As America attempts to recover from the aftermath of a global pandemic, we recognize that members of the Black LGTBQ+ community face compiling social challenges that are exacerbated by the forced isolation and economic hardships that were brought on by the pandemic. As a result, the Black Arts District is dedicated to collaborating with dozens of local and national partners to create safe, celebratory spaces for the purpose of promoting: health, joy, empowerment and equity. We believe Black Pride is needed now more than ever before. With your support we will be able to impact thousands of lgbtq+ people locally and nationally.
