Carnival: A Festival for Black Art @ Stanford - Day 1

Wednesday, May 25, 2022 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm
Dinkelspiel Auditorium | Livestreaming

The Stanford Department of Music is hosting an evening concert and a carnival afternoon to support and promote Black art and Black creatives on campus. We will highlight department ensembles, student groups, independent artists, and off-campus community ensembles performing art from cultures across the Black and African Diasporas, as well as arts where the influence of Black creatives is traditionally underrepresented. Our aim is to provide multiple opportunities for our campus community to both actively engage in Black art and be moved towards action. | Day 2 information
