Hue Live Online Event: Craft, Art, and Advocacy: A Conversation with Artist and Activist Malene Barnett

April 30 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

In this virtual Hue Live event, Hue Managing Editor Alex Joseph hosts a conversation with artist and activist Malene Barnett, Textile/Surface Design ’96, and Illustration ’94.

Malene Barnett is an artist, entrepreneur, and authority on the cultural traditions and practices of art in the African diaspora and how it translates into her vision of the modern black experience.

As the founder of the Black Artists + Designers Guild, a global platform and curated collective of independent black artists, makers, and designers, she is always seeking new ways to define the black narrative and experience for a new generation while bringing awareness to inequality. She’s also on the board for Cerf+, an organization that provides emergency loans to artisans and craftspeople during natural disasters.
