SouthEnd ARTS

As an organization promoting the nexus point between social justice and art-making, SEA not only celebrates the creativity of artists from all backgrounds and cultures but also highlights the power of art to shine a light on societal issues and themes, encouraging self-reflection and calls to action. SEA amplifies voices and mobilizes people to make the change they want to see in the world. In this way, the organization is a social movement that recognizes the potential for art to “convene, connect and catalyze” diverse constituencies toward common goals.
