We’re teaming up with two community minded tech experts, Kristen Nicole and Wayne Sutton, to discuss the importance of black women’s representation in the on- and offline art world and propose new technology for connecting the international black arts community. We want to bring our panel “Art, Technology and Representation: Empowering Women of the African Diaspora through Big Data and Global Networks” to South X Southwest (SXSW). This web conference brings together great technological and entrepreneurial minds to discuss and collaborate on the next important digital trends. We aim to make art, women and people of the African diaspora a part of that discussion and included in the next technological innovation as well as learn as much as we can to advance our project.

Our vision is to bring the art, ideas and talent of Live Unchained to people of African descent throughout the world. Although the Internet helps us build the Live Unchained brand and international network, the digital divide is still a very real problem, leaving blacks in the U.S. and abroad without adequate Internet access. Fortunately (although not sufficiently), technological advancements, especially Big Data and App development, are creating more opportunities to reach out to people who have had limited access, which is what we want to explore.

We need your support to make it to SXSW. We appreciate your vote: http://bit.ly/vote4lu
