Uumbaji | Department of Pan-African Studies | Kent State University

The Uumbaji Art Gallery in the Department of Pan-African Studies at Kent State University is pleased to invite applications from individuals or organizations.

The Uumbaji Art Gallery is a space dedicated to examining themes about global Africa and its diasporas, social justice and other issues facing Peoples of Color. However, it is also a space that embraces themes not directly related to Africa and its diasporas. We select proposals based on the quality of the artwork, how it fits in with our theme, as well as the interest your proposed show may have for the entire university and surrounding community. We encourage applications that reflect a variety of media, styles and viewpoints.
