We produce Black cultural programs that encourage thought and debate throughout the greater Seattle area. The CD Forum serves a broad range of communities: artists, audience members, volunteers, donors, academics, students, writers and many others. They are intellectually and artistically curious and open to new perspectives presented through the lens of the Black experience. Our constituents are diverse economically, culturally and geographically.
In addition to its Humanities programming, the CD Forum presents two performance series. The first is a national series of Black/African Diaspora artists focused on presenting high-quality contemporary work that will challenge our audience’s perspectives about Black art. The second involves work with the local community in which we present, produce and commission work by local performing artists. The
CD Forum places no limitations or pre- conditions prescribed by race on our artists. We present artists who are creating contemporary work that is innovative and distinctive, emerging or under-recognized as well as established, and who reflect the breadth of styles within Black/African Diaspora culture.
