"Black Arts MKE understands our vision of infusing the curriculum with the arts and supports us in our programming needs." - Montessori School Principal

Black Arts MKE works with many of the City’s most talented professional artists to bring multi-disciplinary arts residencies to youth during after school hours in City elementary and middle schools. Our culturally relevant performing arts residencies are designed to help youth express their creativity and take risks while learning important social emotional skills. We reach urban Milwaukee schools in underserved, under-resourced neighborhoods and serve primarily African American youth. Over 15,000 youth and their families have been served through our programming across 11 aldermanic districts including the following zip codes: 53205, 53206, 53207, 53208, 53209, 53210, 53211, 53212, 53216, 53212, 53213, 53215, 53220, 53222, and 53225.
