To our fellow artists we are pleased to once again gather elders, established and emerging artists in this “roundtable discussion.” Several years ago we began this journey and were moving towards forming the DMV Arts Alliance.  This effort got placed at a “weigh station” due to a major focus by the facilitator on the President's Committee on the Arts, Turnaround Arts Initiative.

With the advancement of the International Association of Blacks in Dance, Inc. to locate its base in Washington, DC we are pleased to be of service to the arts community that we live in.  In order to know how the organization can best connect to and serve the DMV Black Arts Community, IABD has taken the initiative to convene and reignite the BLACK ARTS ROUNDTABLE REMIX.

This invitation is extended to you and any fellow arts colleagues that have an interest.  Two (2) sessions are offered so that we might get a complete picture and plan of action.   The advantage of this gathering outweighs our earlier  attempts because IABD currently has the infrastructure to assist the community with needed advocacy and services.

We do you hope you will attend and have your voice heard.   We truly look forward to having you come out personally or send your designee.  Please be present for both sessions if at all possible.  However, it is imperative to lay ground rules so that we might use our time effectively.  Please note that all discussion will be limited.   We ask that we all keep our discussion positive and productive so that we might have solid outcomes and workable solutions.

Hoping to see you there,
