Earthseed Black Arts Alliance

We are Earthseed Black Arts Alliance New Mexico, a Black-led organization inspired by the science fiction of the great Octavia Butler. Earthseed focuses on centering and amplifying Black voices in Northern New Mexico as well as collaborating with Indigenous artists, artists of color, and the city’s arts community as a whole. We believe artists are both at the forefront of change and are critical to the preservation of culture. We believe Black art has enormous healing potential and is a powerful tool for necessary communication, expression, and validation. Representation matters! and Black artists in New Mexico need to be represented and centered in the courageous conversations we are all having at the national level and at the micro-level.
