A commitment from creative alliance
Wed Jun 3

These past weeks have been challenging for us. As staff, we have had to pause, look into the heart of our organization, revisit our mission, and reaffirm our commitment to our community, humanity, inclusivity, and to listen and learn with openness.
 
To Black communities: we hear you, we stand with you, and we are committed to digging deeper and joining you in dismantling the embedded systemic issues within our society. We will speak out against racist acts (both subtle and overt) and create a safe space for collaboration and communication. Many of these systemic issues exist within our own organization. We will do the hard work to help facilitate change right here at the Creative Alliance. 

We will listen, learn, speak up, and act.

the big show creative alliance members exhibition and variety show
Wed May 27

Our 25th annual members' extravaganza IS happening! 

The BIG Show Exhibition Opening & Variety Show will take place on Saturday, July 18th, 2020 – and we want you to participate! Don't miss the opportunity to have your artwork on the walls of our main gallery (yes, on our actual walls), or your fabulous talents showcased on our virtual stage! Who knows... you might be the next BIG thing!

The BIG Show was the very first Creative Alliance program that launched twenty-five years of artistic expression, community, cultivation of young minds, and so much joy. It all began in our original location in Fells Point in 1995 and, after few moves, landed in the renovated Patterson Theater in 2003 to spur artistic development in Highlandtown. But, Creative Alliance is more than a location. It’s more than a building. It’s a force for positive change in Southeast Baltimore and beyond. It's a community of artists and audiences that believe in the power of artistic expression. And so... The BIG Show must go on!
