What's Inside


Black Arts MKE is more than just a nonprofit. We are a committed employer and community member. This wouldn't be possible without the hard work, commitment and expertise of our board, leadership, artists, and volunteers, who are absolutely vital to our organization's success.

We strive to offer challenges for our team in their daily work as well as opportunities to enjoy relationships with friends and coworkers through special experiences.

Having a reasonable work-life balance demonstrates a commitment to our employees as people as well as professionals.
