What's New

WHAT’S NEW The global Covid-19 pandemic has impacted all of us in different ways. For the arts community, we have had to rethink the way we engage audiences while continuing to support our artists, stay connected to our communities, and keep our doors open.


The Mahogany Project is no different. Thank you to our supporters and donors who have stood by us during this time allowing us to continue to support Black storytellers of all artistic mediums with art that inspires, questions, and reflects the world as we see it today and imagines a future full of possibilities.


Interested in volunteering with The Mahogany Project? As a small arts organization we deeply appreciate the support and contributions of our volunteer team. Whether it's helping usher, marketing support, spreading the word about our fundraising campaigns or artist support, you can make a difference in uplifting the voices and talent of African diasporic artists.
