Spectrum Summit

“The Spectrum Summit” is a filmed discussion series exploring contemporary issues impacting the social, cultural and mental health of Black People.

The Summit was held at Eastside Arts Alliance, in solidarity with the 50th Anniversary of the Black Panther Party. The conference includes a series of panel discussions, communal dialogue and workshops delving into transformative self care practices. Our objective is to film compelling conversations of black creatives exploring impactful solutions for the black experience. Bringing together solutions, services and tools to strengthen our community while overcoming systemic oppression.
