From the venue:

NBAF partners with two arts leaders —Atlanta’s NEXT and national network Alternate ROOTS— in a multi-year effort inspired by the idea that art has the power to create change. NBAF NEXT seeks to promote emerging artists, with an emphasis on Atlanta-based artists, and elevate artists working at the intersection of creative expression and social justice.The Salon is a celebration of rising, Atlanta-based talents in the visual, literary, spoken word and musical arts – those on the cusp of stardom. It features four genre-blending performances: visual/performing artist and scholar Fahamu Pecou; jazz and soul vocalist Brenda Nicole Moorer; playwright and community agitator Michael Molina and Emmy-nominated spoken word artist Jon Goode. This interactive event encourages collaboration between artists and audience to take aim at society’s most intractable challenges.
