MemBAN

The Memphis Black Artist Network. Our network of Black Arts Organizations and Arts Leaders

About

MBAA — Memphis' original black arts incubator — has re-established the promise of the original alliance with a focus in seven areas: Funding, Marketing, Artist & Professional Development, access to Discounted Operational Supplies, Rehearsal Space, Exhibiting Performance Space, and Database Access.

The mission of MemBAN is to align partners, co-producers and support for artists and arts organizations of color in an effort to help them develop their creative visions. Currently, there are nearly 50 active arts organizations of color represented in Memphis and more than 600 independent artists.
