After a weeks-long review process, IMAN is excited to announce the dynamic selections to its first Artist Roster. Thirty-five skilled artists from across the country and specializing in many different forms of expression will spend the year becoming well-versed in IMAN’s core principles. Through this training, IMAN artists will more effectively situate their work at the intersection of spiritual culture, social justice and community organizing.
A select few members of the IMAN Artist Roster were chosen for the Sacred Cypher Creatives cohort. This group of 5 will enjoy a yearlong opportunity to work closely with IMAN’s initiatives, contribute to programs and campaigns, and access additional support for artistic projects. Congratulations to Kelly Crosby, Al Taw’am, Kayem, Phenom and Liza Garza on becoming Sacred Cypher Creatives!
Since its inception, IMAN has invested in the careers of artists by building collaborative relationships. We have looked to artists as decision-makers on our project committees, board of directors, and in building community through our Artist Retreats. The launch of IMAN’s Artist Roster uplifts these priceless relationships, and is fundamental to our work in organizing for social change and fostering health, wellness and healing.
