ARTI is a celebration of powerful, culturally affirming Black theatre!

The vibrant energy of music, spoken word, and dance are all reflected in Black theatre. ARTI performances are lively and reflect the contours of Black lives, from the continent to the US. Unwavering in its commitment to addressing challenges facing Black theatre, ARTI initiatives emphasize increased visibility and access to Black theatre in Indianapolis. They also offer a culturally affirming platform for talent and career development opportunities in the arts.
