Promoting Our People
We believe every artist needs an adequate space in which to create, and that space should inspire and support their creative process. We also understand how important it is for the place to have just the right environment, and that is what we strive to provide at Artist Collective. If you’re looking for a place that nurtures your artistic journey, look no further: we’re here and we can’t wait to see what you can create.

PROMOTING BIPOC WORDS
As book critics of color, we don't simply review books, we frame conversations around them. BIPOC writers, as a marginalized group, hold a unique perspective on art and literature. In order to disrupt the cisgendered, patriarchal status quo in publishing, we engage in conversation with texts that are traditionally published but we also heavily focus our efforts on narratives that are uncommon to review: queer, avante garde, hybrid, indie, self-published, and beyond.
By being a part of this collective, we made a commitment to seek self-published and untranslated writers of color. To combat the bias around publishing, we are taking a stand against it the best way that a critic knows how.
Our collective aims to be a self-sufficient support network for critics at varies stages in their career development. By providing our private collaborative community, financial resources, marketing/branding, and mentorship, we provide what it takes to produce strong cultural leadership and advancement. It’s our mission to ensure that the arts remain equitable and approachable by creating a conscious space, where we challenge our assumptions and check our biases at the door.
We believe every BIPOC Book Critic could benefit from a safe space to collaborate. That space should inspire and support the critical process. We also understand how important it is for the place to have just the right moderation, and that is what we strive to provide in the BIPOC Book Critics Collective.
