Sphinx Announces Illuminate Video Series and 2021 Grant Recipients
The Sphinx Organization recently announced its partnership with the Illuminate Series, focusing on stories sharing Black perspectives in classical music. The series was founded and curated by Sphinx programming alumni Steven Banks, Randal Goosby, and Anthony Trionfo. Conversations range from music education during the pandemic, to race/identity/sexuality intersectionality, to artist activism. All three parts are now available on YouTube:
- Part 1: Music education’s role under the lens of the pandemic
- Part 2: Intersectionality between identity, race & sexuality within the LGBTQIA+ community
- Part 3: Artist activism
And let’s not forget to congratulate the new 2021 Sphinx Tank and MPower Artist Grant recipients. The awardees, emerging arts and culture entrepreneurs of color, received a combined total of $145,000 to support their innovative projects and empower them in their arts careers.
