NMAAT has consistently provided activities, virtual and live workshops and events throughout New Mexico since 2004. No Menthol Sundays are an example of work to specifically support NM African Americans.
Each year NMAAT connects with different churches and is continuously reaching new people. In 2018, a minister not only used material in our sermons, but also shared them with his large following on social media. NMAAT outreach engages not only the church community directly, but also reaches more broadly as the church members who are influencers spread the word through their other social connections.
Other examples of community-based events showcasing NMAAT’s outreach include Juneteenth and Black Expo. In 2018-19, the NMAAT developed content for an educational traveling display to be used with partners across the African American community. We are still seeking locations throughout the state where we might be invited to exhibit our display. Connect with us if you are interested in assisting us with an opportunity!
In 2019 we engaged the New Mexico African American Artists’ Guild to help design a mobile exhibit for presentations and events. Its theme is “Black Wellness” and it is designed to not only net a great exhibit space, but also engages the communities’ vision of its best destiny.
