Hosted by David Green of The Cultural Alliance Of Fairfield County. Hear Jeanine Esposito and Frederic Chiu, co-founders of Beechwood Arts & Innovation, in Westport, discussing the AMPLIFY Festival of Black Art, Artists and Performers, held over the last two weeks of June 2020, and broadcast on Facebook Live. The goal was to support black artists and the black community by giving them control of the narrative to AMPLIFY their artistic voices. Black visual artists and performers from the creative community were invited to collaboratively create and share their voices through the lens of the arts. Hear what led Beechwood to create the festival, what it achieved and what the plans are to build on the June 2020 series of events in the future.
