Throughout history, humans have used art to reflect their environment and document change for future generations. The Baltimore Butterfly Session: Archiving Action will delve into how local artists capture Baltimore’s political dynamics. Join us for an exciting evening featuring Kotic Couture, who blends hip-hop with messages of equality through electrifying lyrics. We’ll also showcase Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi, a renowned trans performance artist and advocate known for her work on resilience and collective liberation. The session includes a keynote conversation with Devin Allen, a self-taught photographer who gained national acclaim for documenting the Freddie Gray and the Black Lives Matter Actions in Baltimore, facilitated by Ti Malik Coleman from the Rooted Collective and Affirming Black Families.

Come for the community, stay for the art, and leave with a deeper understanding of Baltimore City.
