2023 grant amount: $29,250 over two years

This grant will support the promotion and preservation of Black electronic music through events and education. 

"The lack of diversity in the electronic dance music (EDM) industry has been a longstanding issue," says KUMA (Khan Kuma)

The project objectives are to showcase local Black electronic music talent, provide a platform for emerging black artists and educate the community about the significance of Black culture in electronic music. The project activities will consist of two shows featuring local black artists and a headliner for each, along with two events focused on local talent. These events will not only showcase the diverse talent in the electronic music community but also provide opportunities for networking and collaboration.
