Left of Centre - Nia Centre for the Arts

Left of Centre

Left of Centre is an artist development program that offers three streams of professional development: Intensive Programs, Artist Talks and Workshops, and Networking Events; designed to support artists across a variety of disciplines and experience levels. Developed in collaboration with Black artists and advisors, across a wide range of disciplines, Left of Centre seeks to support emerging Black artists in navigating traditional and non-traditional art spaces and institutions, securing funding for their work, developing their artistic practices, and continuing to inspire our creative community.

A series of videos, where we explore ways that you can better understand and articulate who you are as an artist, and how to feel empowered to take the roles, space, and energy you deserve as a creative.
The Mixtape
