The 27th Annual Women of Power Conference 2014: The Art of Being a Woman

Join us for the The Annual Women of Power Conference! This year we honor the Diaspora Arts Warrior-Women, the bearers of creative genius who forged the philosophy, praxis and sacred power that illuminate our global cultural aesthetics.

Veteran and emerging artists along with arts managers and elected officials explore their interdependent roles in establishing greater cultural equity, broader cultural opportunity, and more deeply engaged communities.

Women of Power: Celebrating the power in the creative intention of so many gladiator women.


We encourage every elder to bring a young person, as we work on passing the torch.

CCCADI’s Women of Power Conference, one of our signature events held annually in March, considers the role and impact of women in the African Diaspora through various lenses in order to claim, explore, and honor our experiences as well as to strategize for our future.

In March of 2014, “ Women of Power: The Art of Being a Woman” will examine the experience of female artists, cultural workers, and their allies in the Diaspora.   Women of African descent are integral to African Diaspora Aesthetics, to global creative vision and international cultural output. Despite multiple disparities and the rigors of invisibility, we have championed sophisticated iconographies, lexicons, and performance modes that are grounded in the traditional and sacred vision of our root cultures. Through the masterful practice of our living aesthetics - on the stage, page, family, movements, and in the world - we represent the dynamic Art of Being a Woman.

Slated for March 15th 2014 in East Harlem at Julia de Burgos Latino Cultural Center, the program, outlined below, is designed to be both a celebration and a catalyst of the creative achievements, across sectors, of  women of the African Diaspora.
