Arts for Art

Artists for a Free World Protest Concerts

“In the dark of these times, art lights the way,” says Patricia Nicholson Parker, co-founder of Arts for Art. She and William Parker have expanded AFA to include the activist arm, Artists for a Free World (AFFW). Its purpose is to take a stand for racial and economic justice to create a world where peace is possible. AFFW has participated in demonstrations and now, Arts for Art presents AFFW as the September Music and Poetry Protest Performances. This outdoor event series will take place in downtown New York City at The Clemente, La Plaza (114 Norfolk Street) and at St. Mark's Church (131 E. 10th St.). The concerts are presented in partnership with both venues. The events will be socially-distanced and in compliance with all CDC and New York City guidelines. Admission is free and donations are appreciated.
