Shining the light on the Black experience.
At Lights! Camera! Soul! we believe the City of Milwaukee greatly benefits from diversity and inclusion in the arts. The Black experience is one of triumph, independence, struggle, and so much more. Lights! Camera! Soul! aims to provide that platform for Black artists to develop their inner artist and expose their inner creativity.
On a more broader basis, we believe the WORLD greatly benefits from the freedom and ability to create art. It’s an amazing philosophy if you really think about it. Artists have led us out of some of the world’s most darkest times. The confidence to be able to create what you want coupled with the platform to showcase it, uplifts communities and honors our ancestors.
