What is the impact of Party Noire, as a celebratory space for young, black, creative intellectuals and for black queer femme and trans artists/activists? We will explore the implications of Party Noire as a unique space situated in Black history. We will share how to drive a mission-focused collective that is celebratory and healing for Black women across the gender spectrum. Participants will leave with insights into how to think about the possibilities of Black Joy centered spaces.
