Kamau Ware

Artist-Historian & Founder
Black Gotham Experience

Black Gotham Experience’s Founder & Lead Creative Kamau Ware, offers a unique voice on the disconnected links of the African Diaspora between New York City, the West Indies, and Africa. Our signature format for speaking engagements is our Talk/Back that developed from Open Studio events. Artistic representations that are complete and in process are utilized to start a dialogue within participants then directed as a conversation between Kamau Ware and the audience. This experience transports the interactive spirit of the tour into a variety of settings such as conferences, educational institutions, and cultural centers. It is ideal to have someone from the presenting organization moderate the Talk/Back. This content can also be adapted to various formats, such as panels and lectures. Kamau is eager to engage with new communities and already has a diverse mix of panels and invitations lined up for 2017 from Texas to Amsterdam.
