To support Affrilachian Art Summit, the first gathering solely dedicated to exploring the contributions of Black visual artists in Appalachia, addressing barriers and fostering discussions on solutions for emerging Affrilachian artists. Organized by the Affrilachian Artist Project, the Black Appalachian Coalition, and the curator Marie T. Cochran, the three-day hybrid event features symposia, workshops, and networking opportunities aimed at both established and emerging Black artists in the region. The event proceedings are preserved and disseminated through an archive library (more than 100,000 viewers annually), an open-access resource guide, and virtual streaming options for select sessions to accommodate remote participation.
