Curated by Cat Henry (formerly with Jazz at Lincoln Center), the festival features a killer line-up of artists (including 2022 GRAMMY nominees), plus spoken word, film, visual art, community events, and a time-ticketed exhibition opening and outdoor laneway opening night party on February 10. “Lift Every Voice” gives a voice to the artists as they respond to transformative events in our nation’s history and look toward a brighter future.
