Obsidian House at Pratt – A Roundtable Conversation

April 1, 2021 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Join us for a roundtable presentation of Obsidian House, the virtual concept house that shines a light on how space forms the foundation for physical, social, emotional, and creative well-being. Guided by the belief that Black futures are equitable, sustainable, and liberatory, the Black Artists and Designers Guild has created virtual spaces that manifest their collective imaginations. Obsidian aims to empower a million Black families to affirm our right to occupy space, dismantling decades of environmental injustice and social inequity. This is a collective vision of the future, Obsidian is made of both inspiration and aspiration.
