Give us the black sheep. I want artists who are frustrated. I want the ones who have another way of doing things. Those that nobody is listening to... Brad Bird, Director, Pixar
The mission of BLK SHP is to empower the artist and inner creative within us all, recognizing no one unlocks their creativity alone. We convene BLK SHP to forge genuine relationships and community, establish collaborations to work on projects and initiatives that can benefit society, all while having a hell of a lot of fun. Inspired by trips to Pixar in 2012, BLK SHP has grown into a diverse and inclusive ecosystem of people-first collaborators. This ecosystem is made up of a 501(c)3 Foundation, a learning community of artists, educators, and entrepreneurs, and the many partners who support our commitment to art and creativity.
Anyone can be a BLK SHP and activities are open and available for all. Here’s what the flock of culture-makers in Milwaukee has been up to:
