The New Griots Festival’s mission is to highlight, celebrate and advance the careers of emerging Black artists in the Twin Cities. Including the work of ten local emerging artists, free community classes and open working sessions, the festival will be led by director/playwright Jamil Jude, actress Jamaica Meyer and playwright Josh Wilder. Programming will be chosen through a proposal process by these three lead producers, and participating artists will receive two performance slots over the two weekends.
